- Happy to record a solo trumpet piece "MACH", from a Berlin based composer Eres Holz at the Hochschulle für Musik "Hanns Eisler" Berlin, where Eres teaches composition. Eres Holz is one of leading Berlin composers of young generation and a composer in residence in Deutschlandfunk Colone for year 2017. "MACH" is one of the most challenging pieces for a solo trumpet being performed at the Contemporary music festivals this days and it is an honor to record it with Eres himself. I am a huge fan of his music.
