Description

Composer and choir master Clytus Gottwald comments on his transcription of Anton Webern’s Im Sommerwind (1904) as follows: “First of all I had to eliminate all those parts of the source material that had strictly instrumental designs, reducing the work – to quote Wolfgang Rihm – to its singable remnant. What was so surprising, however, was that such a reduction did not lead to a meaningless sequence of fragments, but that the fragments turned out to be – with regard to harmony and motifs – so closely related to each other that the result proved an impressive ‘work within a work’. The reduction uncovered something that could be called the ‘essence’ of the work.
In order to make the singable remnant singable, I used fragments from Bruno Wille’s poem Im Sommerwind, which Webern had used as a basis for his composition.”

Reviews

Die vielen meisterhaften Transkriptionen von Clytus Gottwald für Chor sind durch eine neue Partitur angereichert. Diesmal ist kein Lied mit Klavierbegleitung der Ausgangspunkt, sondern eine üppige, spätromantische Orchesterpartitur: Anton Weberns 1904 komponiertes, durch Bruno Willes gleichnamiges Gedicht angeregtes Stück "Im Sommerwind ". (…) Klarerweise sind die Schwierigkeiten in dem 16stimmigen Chorsatz beträchtlich, doch wird ein entsprechend geschulter Chor große Freude an der Entdeckung dieses Werkes finden!
