Programme Note

selig sind… ("Blessed are…") meditates on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount (the Beatitudes) from Matthew's Gospel. The solo clarinet moves through 14 'stations' via 13 transitions accompanied by a processed sound recording derived from wind and human voices. Andre has spoken of 'processes of vanishing', and a metaphysical search for what remains after disappearance.
