Notes

  • Program notes: 

    A Torinói ló / The Turin Horse for string orchestra is like a parabola of Friedrich Nietzche’s tragedy. Prolonged melancholic resignation is submerged in the play of light and shadow, congealing, fragile and agonizing. The slow flow of music lugs into the centrifugal circle of hell and gradually opens up the layers of the sharpened sound: beyond the textural overlays, the metaphysics of the audio spectrum lies.
