Nächtlich geschürzt

— May 2024

Opus : 22 n° 1 / Type d'œuvre : Pour voix seule(s)

With Auge der Zeit, I chose two poems that were not originally consecutive, in order to form a triptych with Psalm, set to music two years earlier, entitled Über dem Dorn. Here I have developed an atonal choral writing style, made up of clashing counterpoints and extreme harmonic tensions.

Difficulty rating: difficult


Paul Celan

Mixed a cappella choir, divided into six parts, S, MS, A, T, Bt, B with soloists

Duration : 5 mn approx.

Second part of the Über dem Dorn cycle
