Lost boys - for solo violin (2016)
The title refers to J. M. Barrie’s novel Peter Pan and The Lost Boys. The piece is a surrealistic fantasy for violin and squeaky toys played with a paper guillotine, connected to other old time office equipment, baby gurgling and a sentence from François Villon’s poem read by Klaus Kinski.
