Music to breathe life into literary characters, or to recall forever the memory of a cherished friend, or simply to reflect the multifarious temperaments of an orchestra: Cristóbal Halffter transforms his keen insights into tangible sound.

Each of theses three commissioned works was composed for an important occasion. The Dortmund Variations were composed to mark the hundredth birthday of the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra, Tiento for Paul Sacher’s eightieth birthday, and Odradek on the occasion of the Czech Philharmonic’s hundredth birthday. Halffter demonstrates yet again that he is a composer of international importance.

Recommendation
The grand oeuvre of Noam Sheriff, Psalms of Jerusalem, conducted by Gediminas Ramanauskas. 
Hans Thomalla’s opera Fremd adapts one of hte great myths of Worldliterature: Medea; still challenging, still compelling. 
This music is about fading away, about reverberations, echoes. European instruments sound Asian, and Asian instruments are integrated into European art music.
