Staud and Strauss

In his new work for soprano and orchestra, Johannes Maria Staud sets poetry by William Carlos Williams to music – and traces this laconic, multi-layered poetry in many different ways. It will be premiered by soprano Yeree Suh and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Andrés Orozco-Estrada. The latter will also perform Richard Strauss' »Zarathustra«. A work that the composer »dedicated to the 20th century« in 1896 in an almost prophetic manner: Through countless films and shows of all kinds, the glistening bright setting of the C major triad with which it begins has become a pop-cultural cipher of the triumphant. This, however, is followed by an alternating and yet relational meandering, at the end of which the music sinks into the bottomlessness of the dissonant, softly plucked lowest C strings.
