Ein Schemen

Teodor Currentzis

Description Program Artists

This composition is a reworking of Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms. The seven movements, which flow seamlessly from one another, are each based on the corresponding movement from the original Brahms Requiem. The music focuses on a small number of elements from the original material and stretches it out into a landscape. Time is suspended and the listener can navigate in the space, moving through traces of Brahms. The music of the harp which frames the choir parts, is an encoding of the original texts from the Requiem. It creates a perspective on the static flow of the choir and electronic parts which changes gradually through the piece. The title of this recomposition is a quote from a line in part III: “Sie gehen daher wie ein Schemen”.
