Work introduction

The composer has said that he imagined Max Beckmann portraying Eugène Ysaÿe when he composed Gedicht des Malers (Beckmann had portrayed Max Reger one year after the composer’s death).

The soloist virtually embodies the painter’s brush as it moves across the canvas in sometimes faster and sometimes more deliberate ways.
