Ralf Gawlick, Composer, World Première: Best Regards Bruno ~ Letters from Stalingrad

Ralf Gawlick, Composer, World Première: Best Regards Bruno ~ Letters from Stalingrad

Bradford Gleim, baritone, and Chi-Chen Wu, piano, will première faculty composer Ralf Gawlick's new work. Best regards Bruno - Letters from Stalingrad (Herzliche Grüße Bruno ~ Briefe aus Stalingrad) is an electro-acoustic work conceived from the last two letters written by the composer's young uncle (19), Bruno Gawlick, before being listed as missing in action in late December 1942. The listener moves through time and space via a soundscape that integrates archival sound recordings with live spoken word, two separate piano parts and the prophecy of the sung voice. The resulting work is unique, and in its intimacy and profound reflections, constitutes a fierce anti-war memorial. 

The work is  also associated with a larger commemoration: the 75th anniversary of Stalingrad (August, 1942/February 1943 - August, 2017/February 2018).
