Work introduction

Wohin bist du gegangen? is based on texts by the Persian poet Attar of Nishapur (ca.1136–ca.1220) in a free translation by the composer. The male and female voices are separated by the ensemble (with the men on one side and the women on the other). At the beginning of the work, the situation is akin to a traditional performance, but within only a few seconds the light is dimmed until the concert hall is in total darkness.
