Work introduction

Motivated by the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra for a Brahms/Rihm cycle, Nähe fern 3 was composed to be played with Brahms’ Symphony No. 3; it is also the third movement of Rihm’s Nähe fern-symphony.

As with the other pieces in his cycle, Rihm wrote his own music which yet nears that of faraway Brahms. The composition is in constant flux; quick, energetic sections alternate with slow, lyrical ones. Solemn, majestic climaxes precede melodies recalled from the past; they are tender, longing, as if they were conjuring up a lost world.
