European Culture Days: World Premiere of Peter Ruzicka's New Ensemble Music in Karlsruhe

The European Culture Days in Karlsruhe announce the world premiere of the work “…JE WEITER ICH KOMME, UM SO MEHR FINDE ICH MICH UNFÄHIG, DIE IDEE WIEDERZUGEBEN…” by Peter Ruzicka on 16 March 2012. This work was commissioned by the City of Karlsruhe on the occasion of the 60th birthday of Wolfgang Rihm.

The ensemble TEMA directed by Gérard Buquet will present the work at the State Academy of Design. Another performance will be given at the same location on 18 March 2012.

Peter Ruzicka has supplied the following comments on his new work:

“This homage includes a quotation from a letter of Gustave Flaubert that Wolfgang Rihm notates on the edge of his ‘Musik für drei Streicher.’ It comments on a rapid musical condensation that gradually appears to ascend - incomplete, open, undetermined. My composition for nine instruments moves towards this spot, at first fragmentary, groping, only gradually finding a language. Then with ever more outbursts, ecstatic, orbiting. But it seems to miss the imaginary vanishing point...”.
