Norbert J. Schneider wrote his composition "... so lose im Raume" - in which he combines his sets of the "Duino Elegies" by Rainer Maria Rilke and his composition for the movie "Schlafes Bruder" [Brother of Sleep] - in the summer of 1995. In both works, mankind stands alone in the tension between love and God. In both, "childhood" is an important symbol.
This recording derives a particular authenticity from the participation of the novelist Robert Schneider who not only creates a sympathetic atmosphere by reading from "Schlafes Bruder" [in German] between the movements of "... so lose im Raume" but also establishes important connections and is able to elicit curiosity about the further development of the musical process.
