Loneliness - Paul Celan

In 2020 the four-movement composition "Einsamkeit " for symphony orchestra and two voices (soprano, mezzo-soprano), based on the poem of the same name by Paul Celan, was recorded by the label "c-room records".

The orchestration varies string quartet passages with expanded chamber music instrumentation to a large symphonic tutti in the final movement.

The work was recorded under the baton of Leonard Küßner. Samantha Gaul (soprano) and Marie Seidler (mezzo-soprano) were won as soloists for this work.

The use of the text passages could be realized in cooperation with Suhrkamp Verlag Frankfurt am Main.
