ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
STILLNESS

This album is influenced by my fascination for the myth of Lilith.The legend says that Lilith was the first woman, created by god at the same time as Adam, unlike Eve who was created later from Adam's rib. Lilith refused to submit to Adam's will and left the garden of Eden.

When I wrote the music I had these words in mind:

Lilith Solo X:
”And still she sits, young while the earth is old,
And, subtly of herself contemplative,
Draws men to watch the bright net she can weave,
Till heart and body and life are in its hold.”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Lilith 5:
„Weil denn die Schlang Eva hat bracht,
Dass sie ist abgefallen
Von Gottes Wort, welchs sie veracht,
Dadurch sie in uns allen
Bracht hat den Tod.
Lazarus Spengler,1524
Lilith 4:
“Stillness will be in me,I shall gaze into the deep, still
water and that Stillness will be in me."
from “Nurse with wound”
Lilith 3:
„ Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt
Menschlich Natur und Wesen,
Dasselb Gift ist auf uns errebt,
Dass wir nicht mocht'n genesen
Ohn' Gottes Trost, der uns erlöst.“
Lazarus Spengler,1524

Lilith2 :
« L’éphémère ébloui vole vers toi, chandelle,
Crépite, flambe et dit : Bénissons ce flambeau !
L’amoureux pantelant incliné sur sa belle
A l’air d’un moribond caressant son tombeau. »
Baudelaire

La croisade des enfants :
« In Polen,in jenem Januar,wurde ein Hund gefangen
Der hatte um seinen mageren Hals eine Tafel aus Pappe hangen.
Darauf stand:Bitte um Hilfe!Wir wissen den Weg nicht mehr.
Wir sind fünfundfünzig,der Hund führt euch her.
Wenn ihr nicht kommen könnt,jagt ihn nicht weg.
Schiesst nicht auf ihn,nur er weiss den Fleck.
Die Schrift war eine Kinderhand.Bauern haben sie gelesen.
Seitdem sind eineinhalb Jahre um.Der Hund ist verhungert gewesen.“
Kinderkreuzzug,B.Brecht
