Description of Style

"Stimmen, Silben" (voices, syllables) is a kind of short version of my 20 minutes-cycle "Pessoa" for soprano, baritone and five instruments. In this cycle, Fernando Pessoa's drama-like split of his literary oeuvre into different heteronyms are reflected in six stylistically and technically very different movements, which are condensed here in a short soprano solo. Constantly changing expression calls for a virtuosic performer like Anna Maria Pammer, to whom this piece is dedicated. (Alexander Stankovski)
