Flügelbrausend in Vienna

Reading time: 1 min. Alejandro del Valle-Lattanzio

Thus did my wise longing, born in the mountains, cry and laugh in me; a wild wisdom, verily! –my great pinion-rustling longing.

And oft did it carry me off and up and away and in the midst of laughter; then flew I quivering like an arrow with sun-intoxicated rapture:

– Out into distant futures, which no dream hath yet seen, into warmer souths than ever sculptor conceived, – where gods in their dancing are ashamed of all clothes:

The world première of Alejandro del Valle-Lattanzio’s Flügelbrausend [pinion-rustling], whose title originates from a phrase of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra, took place Tuesday night under the baton of Marie Jacquot at the MuTh in Vienna.

The 28-minute piece by the winner of the Ö1 Talentebörse composition prize 2013 is scored for flute, clarinet, electric guitar, marimba, violin and violoncello and was performed by Shkelzen Doli, Thomas Lechner, Sylvie Lacroix, Friedrich Kleinhapl, Hidan Mamudov and Edi Köhldorfer.

A recording of the concert will be broadcast on 7. December at 19:30 on Ö1. Listen live.
