World Premiere of Moritz Eggert’s “Tetragrammaton” for String Orchestra in Stuttgart

The world premiere of Moritz Eggert’s new instrumental work “Tetragrammaton” for string orchestra will take place on 15 December 2009 at the Liederhalle in Stuttgart. The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Michael Hofstetter will interpret the work during the course of a Christmas concert.

The composition was commissioned by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. In accordance with the “Occidental white-magic tradition,” the four letters JHWH of the Tetragrammaton are intended to “symbolise the totality of Godly unity on earth,” whereby the four corners of the earth and the creative human being are symbolised. “At present, certain states of ecstasy interest me in my music, as they play a role in Sufi music, for example, and not for esoteric reasons (I am absolutely opposed to the esoteric) but because the “unspeakable” in music interests me, certain moments of taking off,” say Eggert about his new work.
