Program Notes

With furtive cunning and shrill impudence, the evil spirit controls the field until the people are startled by the suppressed intoning of the “Day of Wrath” and are reminded of the last judgment. However, the evil spirit is not yet beaten and is able to maintain himself through ever new disguises. A penetrating funeral march affirms once again the gloomy vision of death and justice. The demonic opponent is stimulated to ever more furious activity, permanently persecuted by the Dies Irae motive which, by threatening thematic splintering, becomes ever more forcible. The struggle ends unresolved, concluding with a questioning dissonance.
