Item Number: NX.WER-62692

The German composer Paul-Heinz Dittrich, who has been special pupil of Rudolf Wagner-Regeny at the East German Academy of Arts, is Professor of composition at the High School of Music in Berlin. The main burden of his compositional oeuvre falls on the paradigm of language, whether articulated, gestural, conceptual or silently internalized. Dittrich's path as a composer may therefore be seen as language migrating from the outside of music to the inside. Here it takes on a new guise as articulation, poetics and "voix interieure". Two of the works presented on this CD - "Etym" for orchestra after Arno Schmidt's "Zettels Traum", and "Concert avec plusieurs instruments Nr. IV" - are an expresssion of a new vantage point for listening to language. The piece "Action-Reaction" was intended by the composer to be a contribution to the efforts, important at that time, to move electronic music away from the isolation of the studio and to the concert hall, giving the player an opportunity to perform new dimensions of sound.
