Diminuendo fur einen Erzahler, einen Klarinettisten und Bordun. Composed by Wilfried Hiller. Sheet music. Schott. Was wird geschehen, wenn eine sehr hungrige und zugleich sehr kurzsichtige Brillenschlange ihre Brille vergessen hat - die sie ohne Brille ja auch gar nicht finden kann - und auf der Suche nach etwas Fressbarem an ihr eigenes Schwanzende gerat? Classical. Playing score. Composed 1979. 7008. 16 pages. Duration 7'. Schott Music #ED 7008. Published by Schott Music (HL.49006879).

What happens when a very hungry, extremely absent-minded and very short-sighted spectacle cobra loses her glasses - which she is unable to find without her spectacles on - and in her search for something edible discovers the end of her own tail? Wilfried Hiller's Diminuendo provides the astonishingly simple answer: she eats herself, piece by piece, until she ultimately disappears completely. Die zerstreute Brillenschlange (The Absent-minded Spectacle Cobra) is a challenging show piece for the clarinettist and this work would be ideal for a both entertaining and exciting introduction to this instrument within the framework of game activities, theatre festivals and educational orchestral projects.
