Tourism - Pieces for Piano

"Tourism" is a set of 16 piano pieces. The title can be understood as a round trip through emotions that deal with the experiences of slowdown and acceleration, stagnation and motion. Every piece is a self-contained composition, nevertheless it is connect through certain traits to the other pieces. Originally I wrote 31 pieces, starting with No. 16 (now No. 10, "Destination"). In the pieces 11 to 21 I developed some traits of No. 16; in the remainder I picked a trait from its immediate predecessor or successor respectively. Subsequently I dismissed the ones I did not like and compiled 16 pieces to the collection "Tourism."
