Debussy, Claude - Monolithen - Piano Duo Huber-Thomet

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
The works for two s or four-hands united here have quite a few inner connections. Each, in its own way, breaks down aesthetic conventions and involves vast historical and geographic horizons while demanding the highest level of virtuosity from the performers.

“En blanc et noir” [In Black and White] was created in the early days of the First World War. Claude Debussy made no secret of his disgust with the catastrophe of the war and the Germans who were responsible for it. He saw the German invasion as an attempt to destroy French culture. Therefore the title of the composition not only refers to the black and white keys of the keyboard, but primarily symbolizes the two opposing sides in the First World War – white representing the French victims and black the German aggressors.

Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s “Monologe” [Monologues] demands incredible technical skill from the performers. The independence of the two s presents a particular challenge, but so does the necessity of maintaining a sense of balance between the instruments. The composition is pervaded by a number of “historical” quotations. These quotations, ranging from the Gregorian chant “Veni Creator Spiritus” [Come, creative spirit] via Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy to Messiaen, transport the evolution of European music into a new, specially created sound continuum.

“Le Sacre du printemps” [The Rite of Spring] expresses in constantly shifting rhythms the elemental experience of the Russian Spring and “the close connection of the people to the earth”. Igor Stravinsky composed the work at the , as the initial sketches clearly reveal. The spacing of the chords and the tonal range are characteristic of the , so that it is only partially correct to speak of the version for duet as a “reduction”; in fact, it reveals the original conception of the piece.
