About

This album features live, world premiere recordings of two of Philipp Maintz’s orchestral works: ‘tríptico vertical’ for soprano and large orchestra and ‘hängende gärten’ for large orchestra.

The three orchestral songs of ‘tríptico vertical’ for soprano and large orchestra were recorded in Munich in 2014 with the excellent American soprano Marisol Montalvo to whom the work is dedicated, along with conductor Christoph Eschenbach. They are based on the Quinto tríptico vertical by the Argentine poet Roberto Juarroz (1925-1995), whose work is still relatively unknown in Europe.

The premiere of ‘hängende gärten’ (hanging gardens) for large orchestra followed in Berlin in the summer of 2017. The title refers to one of the Seven Wonders of the World: the legendary Hanging Gardens of Babylon of Assyrian Queen Semiramis.

“It was exactly this image,” the composer says, “that best applied to the idea of this orchestral piece: as an installation in which one can place plants, gardening and caring for them, watching them grow (indeed, writing ‘music out of music’) - and also as a ‘garden of longing’ in which things should blossom beautifully and proliferate.”
