Portrait in the "Leipziger Volkszeitung" newspaper:

2014/July and August
Hannes Pohlit will be a invited composer of the famous "Cantiere Internazionale 
d'Arte" at Montepulciano/Tuscany which was founded by Hans Werner Henze in 1976.  As 
composing commission and as the main world premiere of the Cantiere, the sinfonietta "Il Vento"
("The Wind") will be performed in the 2nd Symphony Concert on 30th July. 
In the chamber concert "Affrontare Henze" on 31th July will be the world premiere of his piano
trio "Les Lumières de la nuit" and of his string trio "A-d-a". 

The first volume of Paraphrases de Tango is now available in the
Friedrich Hofmeister Music Publisher


       "Like the contours of a picture, fading in the course of 
       time, the laconical form and clear rhythmic structure of 
       the classical Tango appear in many of these pieces in a 
       transfigured lyrical way: transmitted in the atmosphere 
       of the past musical salon, of which they do not originate 
       in reality, but to which sensitive pianists and ambitioned 
       amateurs can lead them."

       (Hannes Pohlit)


The twelve pieces of this collection continue the romantical tradition of the virtuoso piano 
paraphrase, which received its peak during the 19th century due to Franz Liszt’s (1811-1886) 
paraphrases, opera fantasies and bravour pieces. As a doubled hommage, they combine the 
chromatic melodic of Tango-master Carlos Gardel (1890-1935) and the brilliant piano style 
of Franz Liszt. 

The composer presented his work at the Leipzig Book Fair in a well-frequented show by the 
Friedrich Hofmeister Music Publisher.
