26141 Max E. Keller: 1968 - und heute? (2010) 14'
for tenor/countertenor and recorder
sFr. 26.00
Texts: Max E. Keller Three aspects of the 1968 movement in three sections: The USA War against Northern Vietnam caused worldwide protestation, which led in 1975 to the beaten withdrawal of the Americans. Today's united Vietnam is a thriving country and a rich source of mineral deposits. The Shah's visit to Berlin in June 1967 and the shooting of a protesting student by police triggered a further youth revolt in 1968. The Shah was soon forced to stand down and the Islamists picked up the sceptre in a dubious success. In ist widest sense, the then ideal of a self-determined yet solidly life gave way to a new conformism and apathy and a bureaucratically regulated society. This setting does not make use of today's ready-made pop idiom, but explores a rather more independent, colourful and diversified musical implementation of this unconventional instrumentation. Voice and recorder often move on different levels by reacting to different textual dimensions. This sound world thus reflects the spontaneity, fantasy and abandon of 68 without the superficial duplication of the textual content.

Eduard Mörikes Poesie fasziniert mich durch ihre Doppelbödigkeit und ihre schillernde Stimmungslage, die sich zwischen romantischer Verklärung, verinnerlichter Gemütlichkeit und dämonischer Abgründigkeit bewegt. Sie kommt der klanglichen Erweiterung des Klavierliedes durch die Bratsche dadurch entgegen, dass dieses wunderbare Instrument eine "Vertiefung" des Geigenregisters im Sinne der Hinwendung zum Schattigen, Erdigen und Sinnlich-Körperhaften darstellt.
