lyrics

Markus W. Kropp about his piano piece “Beethoven’s Minimalism”:

“Beethoven’s Minimalism” ist die postmoderne Transkription von Beethovens erstem Satz seiner Klaviersonate op. 28 (“Pastorale”) in die Jetztzeit. Die ihm innewohnenden minimalistischen Kompositionsprinzipien des Orgelpunktes und der Terzbrechung wurden zu einem neuen Werk “recomposed”: Minimalismus metamorphosiert sich zu Beethoven, Orgelpunkte erscheinen im neuen Gewand, Terzbrechungen werden zu geläufigen Dreiklangsbrechungen erweitert, vereinen sich mit Beethovens Themen oder stehen mit ihnen im Dialog. Eine erzählende Klanglandschaft, die sowohl auf dem Zeitstrahl verläuft als auch die Zeitfläche füllt wodurch das Klassisch-Dramaturgische Beethovens und die graduellen Prozesse des Minimalismus zu einem einzigen musikalischen Raum verschmelzen.”
