Bachmannlieder - Jiří Gemrot

Jiří Gemrot - Písně na slova Ingeborg Bachmann

A cycle which Jiří Gemrot originally wrote already in 1984 and which was intended for soprano and piano. Its premiere under name Pět lyrických písní (Five Lyric Songs) was performed at the festival in Bad Kissingen. Much later (in 1997), Jiří Gemrot was asked to prepare an orchestral version of these songs for performance by Munich symphonists.

At that time Jiří Gemrot also extended the cycle by two new songs "Dem Abend gesagt" and "Ich" and he proposed a new name for it. In the end, the performance in Munich has never taken place. The premiere of this piece was planned for the subscription season of the Český rozhlas's Symphonic Orchestra 2004/2005. The solo part should be performed by Magdalena Hajóssyjová.
