Introduction

und ein jeder geht weiter seinen einsamen Weg is a single movement composition for soprano, clarinet and piano based on four small fragments from the diary of the German painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907). In the night of January 1, 1900, Paula Becker travelled by train from Bremen to Paris for the first time in order to pursue her art studies and find her personal voice as an artist. This melancholic work depicts the young painter feeling lost in this large and dazzling metropolis.
