About

rūḥ-i-gulāb (The soul of the rose) by Rupert Huber is based on two 13th-century Oriental texts: the Rose Poem of Ğalāl-ad-Din Rūmī (translated by Friedrich Rückert) and excerpts from the Poem of the Mantle by Sharaf al-Din al-Būsīrī. The works are performed by the Bavarian Radio Chorus, conducted by Rupert Huber, and Madīḥ Ensemble.

A cross-cultural work of art emerges from the composition. Opening up to Oriental and Far Eastern culture is a central concern of the conductor and composer Rupert Huber. This includes turning away from the strict conceptualization of a work – that is, away from traditionally “fixed” notation – to encouraging individual performers to assume responsibility and listen closely to and respond to each other. He consistently follows this approach in the Rose Ausländer setting, Mein Venedig (My Venice).

Rupert Huber was principal conductor of, among others, the WDR Choir and directed the SWR Vokalenemble Stuttgart as well as regularly conducting wellknown choirs, orchestras and ensembles. His works are performed at festivals such as Ruhrtriennale, Salzburg Festival, Wien Modern and Eclat Stuttgart, often in cooperation with ARD broadcasters.
