Lera Auerbach's “Milking Darkness“ for Piano Solo at the ARD Music Competition

An award at the ARD Music Competition has been a springboard for the careers of many of today's well-known artists, including Jessye Norman, Francisco Araiza, Mitsuko Uchida, Thomas Quasthoff, Yuri Bashmet, Christian Tetzlaff, Sharon Kam, Heinz Holliger, Peter Sadlo and Maurice André. The required pieces at the competition also include contemporary works, some of which were composed just for this occasion. Thus the Russian-American composer and pianist Lera Auerbach wrote the piece "Milking Darkness" for piano solo, which will receive its world premiere during the course of the ARD Music Competition on 8 September 2011 by the candidates of the semi-finale.
