Work introduction

The first time Johannes Maria Staud read the stories by Jewish-Polish poet Bruno Schulz, he was deeply moved and learnt to see the world “with completely new eyes”. This led Staud to write his two orchestral works On Comparative Meteorology and Contrebande (On Comparative Meteorology II), exploring Schulz’s mysterious world of enchanted gardens, labyrinthine attics and warrens of the shtetl but without “duplicating or even illustrating them”.
