... man geht seinen Weg wie im Träume (2017)

… man geht seinen Weg wie im Träume is a portrait of the German early expressionist painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) scored for soprano and violoncello. The piece consists of twelve fragments and an epilogue. The work deals with the commitment to art and the artist’s search for an individual style. This search involves moments of doubt, longing, impatience, joy and loneliness. The text fragments used are taken from Modersohn-Becker’s diaries and letters from 1900 to 1907 and from Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem Requiem - Für eine Freundin (1908).
