3 elektronische Studien

Description: Recording of Lothar Voigtländer's 3 elektronische Studien. The basis for the composition are the poems of the poet Erich Arendt. The poems were written around 1925 in his Expressionist creative period. Accordingly, the compositional means: concrete musical material is mixed with electronic sounds to achieve a strongly expressive and suggestive associative effect. It is less thought of as a "setting" of the texts, but should be added to the often strongly symbolic language formulations as a different, musical dimension. The vocals and the piano usually work live. The piano is mostly treated as unrecognizable - this is to achieve a seamless insertion into the electro-acoustic sound material. In a performance, both piano and singer can be electro-acoustically amplified and to a lesser extent technically manipulated (reverberation, iteration, etc).

Alceste

Description: This is a ca. 1774 score of the opera "Alceste" by Anton Schweitzer based on a libretto by Christoph Wieland. The work premiered in Weimar in 1773. The plot was based on the Greek legend of Alcestis, on the subject of female virtue and conjugal love. The library's copy contains an engraved illustration that portrays a domestic scene. The score does not indicate the musical instruments and the music, which is notated in two, three or four staves, contains the German text underlaid with indication of the character who sings.
