SOWIESO

for Jazztrio, composed in 2005.

Markus Stockhausen was asked to compose a jazz piece that was first to be performed at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and then to create a second version of the same music arranged for the Cheltenham Festival Players with all together 10 instruments. This new extended version, called ANY WAY, was performed soon afterwards at the classical Cheltenham Music Festival. (See here)
