About

The piece Hyperion’s Song of Destiny (Hommage à Hölderlin) is one of Lászlo Sáry’s works that comes closest to sacredness. This CD is organised symmetrically, with this magnum opus in the centre: Hyperion’s Song of Destiny, written in 1985/86 for twenty-four string instruments. The Hölderlin poem from which it takes its inspiration is not heard here, and the music unfolds like a single twenty-minute breath, in which we can wallow but not take bearings, and the work seems to be a kind of sacrificial music. It opens a window onto another world, onto a hitherto unknown universe of sound.
