Some think that I compose too much. It's stupid. Why so much? Why do I compose at all? Because it's possible. Quattro movimenti waited 11 years to premier. Topofonika, 25; Extrema, 31; Three Short Pieces for the Piano, 45. Many of my works have never been performed. But composing comes easy to me. When I sit down at the table, I have only one dilemma: music or theater. I've divided each month into two. I spend the other part in Poland, the first, in Salzburg. I have two desks there: one for music, the other for theater.
