Symphony for baritone and orchestra

Text by Ingeborg Bachmann


  • Instrumentation: baritone and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material
  • Language: German

 
Description
While composing this work, I wanted to create a balance between orchestral sections and sections with baritone. The tonal structure and development in my opinion make it a symphony: there is an orchestral introduction, a big first movement (‘song’ one), a more intimate second movement (‘song’ 2) and a Scherzo (‘song’ 3), followed by a slow movement and Finale for orchestra. After there is an epilogue – the fourth ‘song’. The structure is influenced in part by Ingeborg Bachmann’s poems. The first three come from the same cycle Anrufung des Grossen Bären, while the epilogue uses Alle Tage from an earlier and much more politically outspoken cycle, Die gestundete Zeit. Thomas Larcher
