Intercession (from the 'Evensong')
- for solo viola (2010)
TIME ETUDES - from VULNUS
Time etudes is a cycle for one performer playing two recorders and singing a third line.
Irene Sorozabal Moreno's unique talent for such coordination virtuosity inspired Sztojanov to use limited 3 notes motive from John Dowland's 'Time stands still' - on each flute in a different key.
Different instruments have different tunings, the combination defines an interval.
Thus the etudes is a series, with one etude for each interval possible.
Listen to an excerpt: Reversed time, in minor third.

The deeper you are, the more they want (2010)
In 2010 he worked with Asko|Schönberg in
their young composers' project, 9x7
One month before the final deadline we had a workshop, where some of the performers expressed how much they miss expression indications from modern scores (lugubre, amabile etc.)
That gave him the idea to put a free association in the score above each phrase of each player.
It helped the performers get immediately to the musical world the composer imagined.
