program note:

Talaq II tries to handle the piccoloclarinet in a dandified manner. For that reason, categories of melodic and sonorous beauty, of elegance are important. Fragility of sound is the other point, which is in the nature of the dandy. 
Talaq II is part of a polywork: Parts of it are included in my work "Ka“ (2016) for six wind instruments. And "Ka“ will be included in a music theater piece called „Kar“, a novel by Orhan Pamuk.
