September is mainly a cinematic work -with a few exceptions, such as The Song of Manos and The Fools’ March. It all began in 1991 when a friend of mine, director Harry Patramanis, asked me to compose the music for his film “Flight into the Night”. Back then we were both students in Germany and it would be my first involvement in cinema. I confess I was quite nervous. But the project turned out to be a success and I have been writing music for European films ever since, the quintessence of which is September. It is a selection of musical themes I have chosen with care, which for a long time were persistently playing in my mind, until time’s passage molded this work into its present autumnal form.
