The Mayfield @ Moers Festival: chunky hardass metal eruption?
"The Mayfield is a new band led by pianist Heiner Goebbels (67), with an unusual line-up of ondes martenot, electric guitar and massive percussion. This was ideal for shifting between spectral minimalism and chunky hardass metal eruption, with young French percussionist Camille Émaille’s kit bolstered by kettle drum, large gong and huge bass drum, primed for detonation. She was the highly impressive new discovery of the weekend. It's been three decades since Goebbels played at the Moersfest, and he certainly made a savagely controlled sonic scar on the proceedings this time around."

Brecht Festival - ohne Duell
Da es dem Staatstheater Augsburg trotz langem Vorlauf bis heute - wenige Tage vor der angekündigten 'Worldpremiere'... - nicht gelungen ist, auch nur eine einzige gemeinsame Probe aller Beteiligten durchzuführen, hat Heiner Goebbels dieser Live Fassung seines Hörstücks sein Einverständnis entzogen. Die beiden für das Spektakel Vol I und Vol II, am 14. und 22.2. mit dem Opernchor des Staatstheaters 'geplanten' Aufführungen - "Wolokolamsker Chausee III - Das Duell" von Heiner Müller in einer Komposition von Heiner Goebbels - müssen deswegen leider ausfallen. Als Hörstück sind alle fünf Teile der Wolokolamsker Chausee - auch 'Das Duell' mit dem Kammerchor Horbach aus dem Hessischen Freigericht - am 19.2. im Planetarium Augsburg zu hören.
