Excerpt from the booklet:
- How did you discover the accordion?
Rüdiger Carl: In the period after the war, when everything in Europe lay in ruins, my grandmother, who came from East Prussia, where I was born as well, turned up with this squeeze-box under her arm - I was about five then - and she gave it to me as a present after showing me briefly how it works. (…)
- When you are improvising today, on the accordion or on the clarinet, how does that work?
Rüdiger Carl: If I only knew.... (...) One goes for the kind of temperature, which allows one to get things moving without tension, and while they are being created they are examined and worked upon and may eventually find their appropriate form. (…)
- Now - about ´Woyzeck´. Can you still stand the words: "Slowly, Woyzeck, slowly, one thing after the other; he makes mine dizzy…"?
Rüdiger Carl: (...) Director Valentin Jeker got me interested in his production of Büchner´s play, which, incidentally, was very successful. He gave me a completely free hand in assembling and performing the music.
- Are these short pieces meant to be listened together or as separate pieces?
Rüdiger Carl: The original idea was listening to them consecutively. However, just in case, I gave every miniature its own separate title - incidentally.
