Work introduction

This work completes the Verwandlung cycle for the time being. Here, too, Rihm makes use of far-reaching transformation processes in his sounds, for instance when a rattle sounds the first rhythm and four percussionists are used in the course of the work. Technically speaking, Verwandlung 6 does not contain much in the way of pitfalls. However, the great challenge in performing Rihm’s orchestral works remains the process of expending and conveying their inherent energy.
