Audio Excerpt

Berlin Divertimento

World Première

Location: Gewandhaus Leipzig / Germany
Date: 27.10.1974

Work Introduction

In their demanding roles, all four artists involved are able to apply their musicality and the quality of their instrumental technique both imaginatively and inventively. They are all on an equal footing in their ensemble and complement each other as soloists. The idea for this instrumentation originated in my early childhood when I listened to the village musicians at celebrations in Bulgaria. So here I try to blend the inspiration from folklore, the divertimento character of this form of music, and an advanced musical language.
