St. Nicolai-church Eckernfoerde
„Über das Rätselhafte“ ("About the mysterious")

 

While working on "Air mit Sphinxes", Nicolaus A. Huber had the opportunity to listen to Robert Schumann's piano work "Carnaval" live in concert and was captivated by the mysteriousness of the Sphinx melodies it contains:
The riddle of the environment, the riddle of length as a melodic tone, the riddle of repetition and also the riddle of the sphinxes' own structure, the limbs.
For him, “sphinx-like” means the high, deep, wide and full in his piece, without being wide, deep, high and full.
The enigma in Gerald Eckert's “An den Rändern des Maßes” is presented differently:
Energy states that arise from shattered sound fields and the aesthetic qualities of their remains. The interior is veiled, the sonic reality overshadows the origin and makes the core itself “virtual”. Interspersed harmonic fields show a tendency to volatilize as soon as they are created. Moments of pause are accompanied by an increase in fragility.
With a large cast, the Ensemble Reflexion tries to get to the bottom of the enigma in both works and first presents the audience with excerpts from “Air mit Sphinxes” and “An den Rändern des Maßes” before playing both compositions in full length in the concert situation presents.
 

Program:
 
Nicolaus A. Huber
"Air mit Sphinxes" (1987) for large ensemble
 
Gerald Eckert
"An den Rändern des Maßes" (2005/ 11) for two enseble groups
