Work introduction

Tondo is the first of three works that Johannes Maria Staud composed for the Staatskapelle Dresden during his tenure as “Capell-Compositeur” for the 2010–2011 season. Lasting some 11 minutes, the 4-part piece is grouped around the central sound of the 4 horns and is characterised by a big and compact,yet highly intricate sound. Composed with a circular structure, the work can finish after one run-through or can be repeated da capo, as long as required or as external conditions permit.
