“Über Unstern“ by Peter Ruzicka premiered in Leipzig

MDR Sinfonieorchester

The new work "ÜBER UNSTERN" by the composer, conductor and director Peter Ruzicka is also a commissioned work, in this case from the MDR. An inspiration for Ruzicka's new orchestral work, which will be premiered by the MDR-Symphony Orchestra under Peter Ruzicka's own direction on 5 November 2011 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus, is Liszt's late piano piece "Unstern! - Sinistre" of the year 1885.

As so often, Ruzicka encounters the subject of a new composition in the form of a symbolic approach and distancing. The actual subject remains untouched in its characteristics and is more or less commented on from the outside by the composer, so as to make its possibly still unrecognised inner characteristics more recognisable.

There will be follow-up performances on 10 December 2011 in Shanghai with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and on 17 December 2011 in Peking with the China Philharmonic Orchestra, both performances under the direction of the composer.
