description
The apocalyptic oratorio „… inwendig voller Figur...“ was written in 1971 to mark the 500th birthday of Albrecht Dürer. To Klaus Huber, Dürer’s extraordinary work Dream Vision (1525), a watercolour sketch of a landscape that is destroyed by falling masses of water, seemed to be a formal premonition of the mushroom cloud of the atomic explosion 420 years later and, thus, of one of the pressing apocalyptic threats of our time. Huber also included in his work a short orchestral improvisation on a collage of Dürer’s woodcuts on the Apocalypse, which are illustrated in the score.
