May News

May is full of sound. Composing for Berlin 1933, our prequel to the mammoth production Berlin 1945-Diary of a Metropolis. Composing for the three-parter Alles Licht das wir nicht sehen by Anthony Doerr for the WDR. And in parallel we are having the production of Herzbefellt.Ein Nachrufen by poet Frieda Paris, here with actress Lisa Hrdina (photo to the left) in my studio. Her dialogue partner is the wonderful Marina Frenk. – And in the middle of it all, the news reaches me that I am to receive the Günter Eich Prize for my life’s work as a radio playwright.
