About

Soul Paintings is the fourth of ten CDs in the Edition Enjott Schneider series released by WERGO: In the three works included on this CD, emotional processes have been pushed to the foreground – music as expression.

The title of the violin concerto Earth’s Eyes refers to a remark of the philosopher Henry David Thoreau: Just as the human eye is the true window to the soul, a lake can be seen as a window to the soul of our planet. Schneider has dedicated one movement each of the concerto to a lake – to the Königssee, Mondsee, and Lake Garda.

The double concerto Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is based on the probably most famous literary version of the doppelganger motif. This simultaneous existence of two opposing, yet inextricably linked characters was an exquisite dramaturgy for a double concerto for two virtuosos. “Good” and “Evil” cannot always be distinguished from one another.

The second symphony Sisyphos was inspired by the mythological figure of Sisyphus, who was condemned to eternal labour because of his cunning and trickery. This work, which can also be seen as a percussion concerto, was premiered by Stefan Blum and the Munich Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Heiko Mathias Förster in Munich in 2013.
