"People tend to believe that the composer is working next to God. The fact that it is a human being alone who is going for a walk — wholly without God — they seem unable to grasp. No one understands the composer: neither the listener, nor the musician, who at best can only draw near." (Luna Alcalay)

Escapade was written in 2011 at the instigation of Walter Auer, flautist of the Orsolino Wind Quintet, the ensemble to whom the work is dedicated. In musical language chiefly characterized by the transference of small pitch-groups between instruments, to striking colouristic effect, the composer takes us on a journey through four short movements – “Verworbene Pfade, verlorene Wege” (Criss-crossing Paths, Lost Trails), “Passagen” (Passages), “Gewächse” (Growths) and “Verirrungen, Attacken” (Aberrations, Attacks) — leading us towards and away from momentary staging-posts en route.
