Francis Burt: New work for ensemble

Francis Burt has always been captivated by the lyric power of Paul Celan – the force of the images, heartrending as they imply incipient disasters and ineffable suffering, as well as the poet’s tragic life, ending as it did with his suicide. Deeply moved, Burt found a way to express it in Mohn und Gedächtnis, retaining the name of Celan’s book of poetry.
