bernd aloïs zimmermann - stille und umkehr

Stille und Umkehr (Silence and return) its last score of Bernd Aloïs Zimmermann (1920-1970). It will be created in a posthumous way in 1971 in Nuremberg. The composer does not give up, in spite of the extreme reduction of the material and the total immobility of this music, associating instruments usually foreign to the orchestra like a musical saw, an accordion, and using fleetingly a rhythm of blues a way, doubtless, to mean that even in the biggest despair always has to remain a tiny light of whim.
