Description

Dieser Musik liegt kein Text zugrunde. Das "in memoriam" der Dedication bezieht sich auf das subjektive Empfinden des Komponisten, nicht auf reale Kenntnis der Person des Dichters. Die Komposition folgt frei der Leseerfahrung einer imaginären Totenrede. Gleichzeitig versucht sie die Stufen von Schärfe und Helligkeit nachzuvollziehen, die das Werk des Dichters am Ende erreichte. Das Dunkle, das es aufwarf, bleibt schwarz. -Wolfgang Rihm
