Benjamin Brittens Liederzyklen

Series:

Antje Reineke

Das vorliegende Buch bietet die erste umfassende Studie zu Benjamin Brittens 15 Liederzyklen. Entstanden zwischen 1936 und 1975, nehmen sie neben den Opern eine wichtige Stellung in seinem Schaffen ein und haben sich heutzutage fest im Repertoire etabliert. Das Hauptinteresse der Autorin gilt der Analyse der musikalischen Strukturen und Textfolgen, der Darstellung der vielfältigen formalen Konzeptionen und der Vielschichtigkeit der behandelten Themen. Im Vordergrund steht die Frage übergreifender, zyklischer Zusammenhänge. Das Buch beleuchtet damit auch die grundsätzliche Problematik von Wesen und Charakter eines Liederzyklus. Dazu widmet sich die Autorin den Entstehungsgeschichten, von der Auswahl der Texte bis zum fertigen Werk, und der Rolle nicht in die Zyklen aufgenommener Lieder.

And when she buries a Man, that action concernes me: All mankinde is of one Author, and is one volume; when one Man dies, one Chapter is not torne out of the booke, but translated into a better language; and every Chapter must be so translated; God emploies several translators; some peeces are translated by age, some by sicknesse, some by warre, some by justice; but Gods hand is in every translation; and his hand shall binde up all our scattered leaves againe, for that Librarie where every booke shall lie open to one another: As therefore the Bell that rings to a Sermon, calls not upon the Preacher onely, but upon the Congregation to come; so this Bell calls us all: but how much more mee, who am brought so neere the doore by this sicknesse. There was a contention...
