Haas: New work for orchestra

Salzburg Festival

Titus Engel (c) Detlef BaltrockThe new orchestral work “… e finisci già?” by Georg Friedrich Haas was inspired by Mozart’s fragment for the Horn Concerto No. 1 KV 412, which Haas considers an impressive personal document.

”At the beginning of the concerto movement, Mozart places the D major chord exactly in the position of the overtone chord,“ Haas says. ”This overtone chord is the centre of my short piece, out of which the beginning of the movement unfolds, as written by Mozart – in four different temporal elongations and contractions simultaneously.“
