Romanian Premiere: Peter Ruzicka’s “ÜBER UNSTERN“ for big orchestra in Bucharest

Peter Ruzicka’s 2011 composed work “ÜBER UNSTERN” will be given it`s Romanian premiere on 20 June 2013 in the Atheneum in Bucharest. The Philharmonic Orchestra “George Enescu“ Bucharest will perform the work under the direction of Peter Ruzicka.

The composer comments on his work:
“Liszt’s late piano piece ‘Unstern! – Sinistre’ written in 1885 follows a musical rhetoric that appears to have fallen out of time: freely arranged melodic gestures that hesitantly begin and then die away again, rhythmic traces without progression, music that finally dissolves into an indefinite harmonic language. (...) Musical shapes are taken up, ‘held onto’, expanded and overwritten: thinking ahead in a contra-subjective language, attempting identification and distancing, rapprochement and contradiction.”

Just now Ruzicka has prepared a piano version (Späte Gedanken for piano) of “ÜBER UNSTERN”, premiered on 28 May 2013 by the pianist Sophie-Mayuko Vetter at the Klavier-Festival Ruhr.
