Martin Klusák In Paradisum

1. Libera me / electroacoustic track
2. In paradisum / for boy soprano, 6 glasses and chamber orchestra

Premiere: St. Agnes Convent, December 9, 2013
Václav Preisler - boy soprano

It has never been less comfortable for me to come up with a few lines of text. My fingers are sweating, heart pounding, I feel sick, almost a tear in the eye… I vividly recall my February evening encounter, in one of Prague’s parks, with a guy approximately my age; backpack, a cap on his head, an mp3 playing in his ears… pale and stiff as a mannequin, his feet levitating at the level of my waist, a rope tied up on a branch… dead.
The piece “In Paradisum” is an unofficial requiem for those who have completely lost all hope. I believe that even to them, after the darkest night, light will emerge.

PLEASE NOTE: you are listening to a live recording from the premiere
