ArtistsJan Philip Schulze (piano)
"...precisely because I was fascinated by a particular area of tension: Baudelaire, that master of delirium and visionary ideas, chose a quintessentially classical form for his texts on evil: the sonnet. This exact polarity is mirrored in my composition. Naturally I was also interested in the basic aesthetic focus of Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du mal: beauty in evil. I had to keep reading the poems again and again – partly because I recognised myself in these texts. It was an enormous challenge to translate these poisonous green fumes of literature into piano sounds; the piano initially seemed much too concrete to evoke this floating, vague quality". - Jörg Widmann
