„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.

„Über dunkle Energien und leere Räume“ ("About dark energies and empty rooms")


Dark energies are the starting point for the work cycle “energeia aphanés” by Michael Quell. In astrophysics, this mysterious phenomenon serves as a hypothetical attempt to explain the observed increasing speed of expansion of the universe, which otherwise stands in clear contradiction to the gravitational effects caused by matter. Its existence has not yet been proven, so it itself cannot be observed, but, like dark matter, it essentially determines the space-time structure of the universe.
In the works of the same name, this idea becomes a symbol of a musically aesthetic world whose actual control principles remain consistently hidden, but whose results determine the world of experience. Space, time and the idea of ​​time dissolution play a central role.
