Watch Antonella Bini Performance of James Erber ‘ein andrer Hauch’

Erber’s Rilke-inspired work for piccolo

I composed this short piece between March and June 2012, after I had read the third of Rilke’s “Sonnets to Orpheus”. I decided to write for piccolo because of the poem’s references to breath and breathing, which also give the piece its title.

Two types of music – the first dynamic and in constant flux, the second (which features an extensive use of harmonics) static and unchanging – are juxtaposed throughout. For, as the sonnet tells us, “Where two heart’s arteries/ intersect, there stands no temple to Apollo”.
