Series: Ensemble Publisher: Schott Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Heinz Holliger
I was in the middle of a recording project featuring Franz Schuberts complete symphonies and other orchestral works, when I received a request from Anna Lucia Richter asking if I could compose a companion piece for Schuberts The Shepherd on the Rock. I was inspired by the movingly simple yet profoundly mysterious musical text Schubert had published by Robert Schumann under the titleReliquien [Relics], and a composition in three sections was born which oscillates between recitative-like sections and expansive ariosos. The beginning of Schuberts enigmatic funeral march Franz Schuberts Begräbnis- Feyer [Franz Schuberts funeral ceremony] for nine winds, written when Schubert was only 16, wanders like a phantom as a tonal shadow through the score. Heinz Holliger
