The preludes, written by Carlo Domeniconi in 2013, were performed by mandolinist Annika Hinsche for the CD Selected Works VII: 12 Preludes for solo mandolin
, which was released in March 2015.
A series of concerts in Berlin were organized for November 2015 to celebrate the release, including practical and theoretical introductions to the pieces by Domeniconi and Hinsche. At this time the score of the preludes (see below
) was also published.
Ursa Major Design designed the CD, the cover for the score and publicity material (poster, postcard, e-flyer) for the associated events.
The cut-out of the mandolin was made by Carlo Domeniconi, who, incidentally, has illustrated several theatre and dance productions.
