Shanghai: Chinese Premiere of Peter Ruzicka's “ÜBER UNSTERN“

The inspiration for Peter Ruzicka's orchestral work "ÜBER UNSTERN" composed in 2011 is the late piano piece "Unstern! - Sinistre" written by Franz Liszt in the year 1885.

The Chinese premiere of the work will be presented on 10 December 2011 in Shanghai performed by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra under the direction of the composer. Ruzicka also conducted the world premiere on 5 November of this year when the MDR Symphony Orchestra performed it at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig.

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.
