Work introduction

Inspired by the texts by author Josef Winkler, who was motivated by the sculpture “The Specter of the Gardenia” by Marcel Jean to write an idiosyncratic, surreal monologue, Johannes Maria Staud has translated his poetic images fluctuating between anger and tenderness into a work for ensemble. “I have attempted to write instrumental music that is very much inspired by these verbal image fields, by these aphoristically evocative things.” (Johannes Maria Staud)
