FRIEDRICH CERHA PDF

Magazine article Gramophone. You could say it reads like the plot of a novel. A young Austrian musician, unwillingly conscripted into the Wehrmacht, deserts; he is caught; later, having deserted for a second time, he makes his way to the Tyrol, where he sees out the war living in a hut and working as a mountain guide before eventually returning to Vienna. This is no fiction, though: it's the wartime experience of Friedrich Cerha.

In the mids, Cerha began to incorporate elements of earlier styles in his music - Baal , for example, has been described as recalling Alban Berg's operas Wozzeck and Lulu. Cerha is known as well for his orchestration of the third act of the latter work, which Berg left unfinished at his death in The composer has provided the following remarks about the piece:.

Because I did not want to set the texts as songs, I increasingly stylized these melodies. When I received the commission for a string sextet, an ensemble that corresponded very much to the kind of sound I wanted to present, I set about developing my speech-melodies into musical movements. This process soon proved itself to be too restricting and the result was too short-breathed. So I went back to my speech-melodies again, but used them in a very free, highly stylized way - especially in the final movement, which, in its monomaniacal musical power, is totally independent of the text's inflection.

I have done it, because I see it as a guide to the emotional content of each movement and also out of fairness. I would not want to keep such an important source for my work secret.
