Work introduction

Every composer, particularly of our time, is very much dependent on good performers. Wolfgang Rihm is fortunate in that virtuosos constantly look to his music for new challenges – and they are fortunate to have a master like Rihm to provide these challenges. At the premiere in Donaueschingen, trumpeter Marco Blaauw demonstrated that he is able to meet even the highest technical requirements with an enchantingly radiant tone. A highly complex chamber piece that lacks nothing in sensual charm.
