“MY MELODIES”
“It was many years ago”, recalls Winrich Hopp, musica viva’s artistic director, “that I asked Helmut Lachenmann to compose a new work for the Bavarian RSO, and this is in fact the first work he’s ever written for this splendid orchestra. I kept all my ideas and suggestions to myself, knowing that any commission given to Helmut Lachenmann must be carte blanche. That musica viva and the Bavarian RSO now have this work when the orchestra comprises such an extraordinary group of performers is a great gift. The horn soloists are thrilled!”
