Concert overture for chamber orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
It was at the suggestion of the conductor of the World Première, Mariss Jansons, that Jörg Widmann refers to musical characteristics of Beethoven’s 7th and 8th Symphony. His starting points primarily are specific fast types of movement in the Beethoven works which he translates into his tonal language. Widmann has chosen the same instrumentation as the Beethoven symphonies and takes on the task of causing a similar ‘stir and rhythmic pressure’ (Widmann) with these economical means.
