Excerpt

26/08/1986 - Salle Ansermet, Radio Suisse Romande, Geneve (Switzerland) - Sarah Walker (MzS), Roger Vignoles (pno)

Rather than adopting the well-known practice in certain 16th-century polyphonic music of superimposing temporal planes, this work aims to superimpose or overprint various semantic planes to be found between the text and the music. The echo is not seen as a pure interaction between a set of given words and notes. As might be expected, the music was built up in relation to the poem, but is more of an echo of the words, like a blurred footprint which communes with silence (presence-absence). There are no dramatic gestures, no flights of fancy one is simply left with an impression, an atmosphere which diminishes the relevance of the question, "Is the explicit meaning of words obscured or magnified by the sounds which are made to correspond with it?"
Eco is a setting of Sonnet 80 (1594) by Luis de Gongora.

Michael Jarrell,
translated by Mary Criswick

Eco wurde aufgrund eines Auftrages der Stadt Genf für Sarah Walker und Roger Vignoles komponiert und am 28. August 1986 in Genf uraufgeführt. Bei dieser Partitur, die auf dem Sonett 80 (1594) von Louis de Gongora aufgebaut ist, wurde das Verhältnis zwischen Text und Musik nicht als eindeutige wechselseitige Beeinflußung verfaßt, sondern letztere ist seine Spur oder sein Echo. Obwohl die Musik in Beziehung zu dem poetischen Text strukturiert ist, ist sie doch nur wie der Widerschein einer verschwundenen Quelle.
