Heinz Chur (heinzchur), Composer

Biography

Heinz Chur was born  in Essen (Germany), and for him music is a
wonderful language - the language of ideas and emotions. The Piano
Sonatas Nos 6 - 8 are examples of his tonal style. These sonatas were
composed concurrently (e.g., the first movement of Piano Sonata No. 6
developed during the same year as the final movement of Piano Sonata
No. 8), and in each case the completed sonatas were committed to
writing within the space of a few days: Sonata No. 6 in 1984, Sonata
No. 7 in 1985, and Sonata No. 8 in 1987. Each sonata has a
three-movement form. While No. 6 is a piece of passionate music, No. 7
bears the stamp of mystical fantasy. In the latter sonata the slow
first movement is followed by a wild second movement at times
reflecting the fugue style. In turn, the second movement proceeds to a
slow third movement representing a virtual mirror reproduction of the
first movement. It is here, after thematic development, elaboration,
and inversion in the second movement, that the cycle described by the
music is brought to completion: the mysterious cycle of growth and
decay. Piano Sonata No. 8 is a sonata of new beginning and hope, as is
manifestly shown in the radiant D major conclusion of the third
movement.
