This work was commissioned in memory of 100 Years of the First World War. A short scene from my opera Die Antilope (2013/2014) is taken as the musical starting point. With new, dynamic ideas, this is then developed exponentially in this three-part orchestral work while continually treading a line between swirling orchestral density and an iridescent delicacy that comes close to that of chamber music. (Johannes Maria Staud)
Johannes Maria Staud’s Moment, Leute, Moment will receive its German première on 7 May at the Staatstheater Darmstadt. Will Humburg conducts the Staatsorchester Darmstadt.
