This work was commissioned by the Orchestre National de Belgique for the 2014/2015 season in memory of 100 Years of the First World War. A short scene from my opera Die Antilope 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 orchestral piece Moment, Leute, Moment! will be premièred on 1 March at the Palais des Beaux-Arts. Stefan Blunier conducts the Orchestre National de Belgique.
