GOD 68

Gerhard Rühm


GOD Records · GOD 68 - Gerhard Rühm - Blumenstück, Excerpt


Blumenstück for piano was composed in 1984 as a sound meditation for private use
and it celebrates the beauty of the piano sound through tenderness and slowness.

All the sounds of the work derived from a word list that lists 168 flower names.
All the letters in these names were assigned to notes on the keyboard
according to a fixed system.

Each sound has to be played softly and as long as possible.
After the attack, all sounds should fade away into silence...
