Wolf: Der Vogelsang / Reemtsma, Kizuna Quartet
Steffen Wolf's (*1971) recitation music is in the tradition of the Romantic melodrama and does not deny it, despite having its own contemporary tonal language. Rather, it plays with that tradition, allowing forms from the time of the poet Christoph Martin Wieland (1733-1813) to appear and resound anew. Clarity, audibility, and strong reference to the course of the plot distinguish it. Kizuna Quartet plays as this grand-scale plot unfolds.
For the recitation of the Wieland text, none other than the literary scholar Jan Philip Reemtsa, who studies Wieland, could be up to the task.
