George Crumb Star-Child
Carl Orff Carmina Burana

Eines haben Orffs berühmte Carmina Burana und Crumbs noch zu entdeckendes Star-Child gemeinsam: das Bild des Rades. Bei Orff ist es das Rad des Schicksals, das sich schon in der mittelalterlichen Handschrift fand, der er seine Lieder entnahm: „O Fortuna!“ Geschrieben wurden sie in finsteren Zeiten. Die Schicksalshaftigkeit wird durch derbe Saufgesänge und das Frauenlob des Minnegesangs abgemildert. Der gefeierte Choreograf und beliebte ehemalige Karlsruher Ballettdirektor Germinal Casado verwandelte die berühmte Komposition in ein opulentes sinnliches Tanzfest voller archaischer Wucht und poetischer Schönheit. Das Ballett hat hier ein konzertantes Vorspiel: Auch Crumb griff auf mittelalterliche Texte zurück und legte seine Eröffnungsmelodie der „Musica Mundana“ in Kreisform dar. Er lässt seine Chormassen das Dies irae ähnlich skandieren wie Orff, doch führt sein Weg zum New Age. Star-Child wurde 1977 mit großem Erfolg von Pierre Boulez und den New Yorker Philharmonikern uraufgeführt und mit einem Grammy ausgezeichnet.

At a Glance

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH  Violin Partita No. 3 in E Major, BWV 1006

Bach’s six sonatas and partitas for unaccompanied violin have delighted listeners—and tested the mettle of performers—ever since their rediscovery during the 19th-century Bach revival. The E-Major Partita is a suite of five stylized dances prefaced by a bright, bravura Preludio.  


GEORGE CRUMB  Four Nocturnes (Night Music II)

George Crumb’s music is characterized by richly evocative poetic imagery and exotic timbral effects, often produced by unconventional instrumental techniques. These four short “night” pieces seem to emanate from a surreal world in which both the passage of time and traditional rules of musical syntax are suspended.


FRANZ SCHUBERT  Fantasy in C Major, D. 934

Schubert’s richly melodious Fantasy is recognized as a masterpiece today, but it received mixed reviews at its premiere in 1828. One newspaper tartly observed that the lengthy piece “occupied rather too much of the time a Viennese is prepared to devote to pleasures of the mind.”


ESA-PEKKA SALONEN  Lachen verlernt

The title Lachen verlernt (Laughing Unlearned) alludes to Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire, in which the narrator begs Pierrot to teach her to laugh again. Esa-Pekka Salonen’s somberly lyrical music is based on a repeated sequence of chords—half heard and half implied—that underlies the solo violinist’s increasingly agitated antics.


OTTORINO RESPIGHI  Violin Sonata in B Minor

Respighi was still smarting from the disappointing reception of Fountains of Rome—the first of his symphonic poems and destined to be a concert-hall staple—when he wrote this bracingly virtuosic sonata in 1917. The two works share a lyrical, richly textured late-Romantic idiom.
