5247 Balz Trümpy: EIS EROTA (2002) 12'
for soprano, baritone, horn, two trumpets, trombone, percussion and strings
sFr. 62.00
Sappho and Alkaios from the isle of Lesbos are amongst the most prestigious representatives of Greek lyrics strongly connected with the Orpheus saga. After the heavenly singer has lost his beloved Eurydice to the underworld and, spurned by his endless mourning, he seeks the love of other women. Bacchante tear him to pieces in an angry rage and cast his head into the sea. The tide washes it onto the shores of Lesbos - here his mouth is once again brought to speech by the lyric of the island. Mythological notions merge with personal experience and sufferance in connection with the erotic. Eros is the ‘weirdest God’ (Alkaois) whose effect is to rip open the abyss between the highest fulfilment and the degeneration towards death. The elemental force with which he encompasses man awakes in him an orpheic longing for immortality and the desire to overcome the underworld; simultaneously bringing even more painfully the forlornness of his wish to consciousness. While Alkaios attempts to forget in wild drunkenness and sexual indulgence, we eavesdrop on Sappho, and the dark tones of a wish for love in which pain resonates with the transient. EIS EROTA combines fragments from both poets to produce a dialogue on the subject of love and death.
