Munich Chamber Orchestra premieres Peter Ruzicka’s “TRANS”
The Munich Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Alexander Liebreich will also perform works by Modest Mussorgsky and Alfred Schnittke, alongside TRANS, in the “Grosses Haus” of the Prinzregententheater in Munich.
Peter Ruzicka has frequently worked on individual independent works leading towards a larger upcoming project. The composition “VORGEFÜHLE” (Premonitions) in anticipation of his opera “CELAN” was an example of this. The new piece “TRANS” also stands at the beginning of his occupation with an operatic project to be realised in 2014. It does not yet have a title or libretto, but only a “vision,” as Ruzicka says.
”TRANS is a kind of pre-echo – that’s what I called a piece some time ago that approached the sonic identity of the ‘Hölderlin’ opera. The title ‚Trans’ refers to the area of material in which I plan to dwell. The actual subject will be the change from reality into something transcendental, having to do with the hereafter,” says the composer.
