Dittrich, Paul-Heinz - Engfuhrung Engfuhrung
Electronic Used - LP 8 85 291 Nova
Rare 1989 Original. Appears Unplayed. The Work Is Scored For Soprano, Vocal Ensemble (2 Sopranos, 1 Alto, 1 Tenor And 2 Basses), Instrumental Ensemble (Violin, Cello, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Guitar And Piano), Orchestra, Tape And Live-Electronics. This Is Undoubtedly An Ambitious And Substantial Work Of Some Considerable Complexity. Celan’s Poem Has Some Musical Structure Of Its Own (Engführung Means Stretto) With Refrains And Verbal Variations That Greatly Help Maintaining Some Formal Coherence To The Whole. The Work Opens With A Prologue Sung By The Vocal Ensemble On Words Restated Later, Either Literally Or In Variants, And Concluding The Poem. The Various Stanzas Follow, Interspersed With Orchestral Interludes, Most Of Which Are Quite Short, Though The Third Interlude, Occurring Halfway In The Work And Signalling Its Climax, Is A Rather Weighty Orchestral Section. The Whole Setting Alternates According To The Words And Is Set To Full Orchestral Accompaniment Or To Chamber-Like Ensembles. The Vocal Parts, Generally Set In A Strongly Expressionistic Manner, Sometimes Relies On Speech And On Pre-Recorded Material. For The Coda To The Epilogue, Dittrich Chose A Late Poem Written In 1967 Commemorating The Pre-Fascist Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg And Karl Liebknecht Heard Mostly On Tape And Progressively Silencing The Singers And The Orchestra.... more details
