In this concert the volatility and the impossibility of love is expressed in words and music. But also the pressure of the social environment, fighting for ideals and the struggle between desire and reality are central.
"Ein Komponist kann die Welt, in der er lebt, nicht gleichgültig betrachten. Menschliche Leiden, Unterdrückung, Unrecht... all das kommt zu mir in meinen Gedanken. Wo es Schmerzen gibt, wo es Unrecht gibt, will ich mitsprechen durch meine Musik." (Isang Yun, 1983).
This concert is the volatility and the impossibility of love expressed in words and music. But the pressure of the social environment, fighting for ideals and the struggle between desire and reality are central. This is performed both on a personal level in poems by Adriaan van Dis, Baudelaire and Wilhelm Müller, and as in a critical social context like the poems of the Indonesian poet Rendra.
During the concert the poems are musically supported, with music by Schubert, Jolivet, Carter and Yun. In Schubert’s Trockne Bumen, part of Die Schöne Müllerin by Wilhelm Müller, the unrequited love is serenated. The music of French composer Jolivet expresses the relationship between man, nature and the cosmos. The sonata has the same nature as Les litanies de satan, from the work Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire's.
Because of the political choices he made, the Korean composer Isang Yun has suffered heavily from captivity and torture. he has incorporated these experiences into his compositions. The poem of Yi Won connects to these events and the melancholy poems by Cho Byung-Hwa, who deal with the volatility and weakness in love, strengthen the atmosphere of Yun's trio.
The Greek composer Xenakis was active in the resistance during World War. He was wounded, captured and sentenced to death. He also incorporated his experiences into his compositions. Ramsey Nasr, known as very socially involved, will recite one of his own poems at Dhipli Zyia.
Boudewijn Tarenskeen, born in New Guinea and of Indian descent, writes musical commentary on a poem by the Indonesian poet Rendra. This poet expresses his outrage at the social injustice in his country through his poetry.
