Work Introduction

Dedicated to Mauricio Kagel on his 60th birthday, this work requires the three instruments to be positioned as far as possible from one another on the stage, transmitting quiet messages to one another from the distance. Most of them consist of one, sustained pitch, then a little more – but the music remains extremely transparent and airy, pianissimo and triple-piano (apart from a few triple-fortes and triple-forte sforzati). Rihm describes the end like a dream, the violinist making a silent, beckoning gesture and the other players cupping their hands to their harkening ears.
