Klein, Joseph: Zwei Parabeln nach Franz Kafka 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Zwei Parabeln nach Franz Kafka is a setting of two of Kafka’s parables for narrator, mixed choir, and computer music. The choir part is comprised of fragments from Kafka’s texts in the original German, while the narrator reads the complete texts in English translation. The computer music is derived entirely from the choral music, which has been manipulated in order to extend the timbral and textural range of the ensemble. Zwei Parabeln nach Franz Kafka was composed for Henry Gibbons and Canticum novum, and is included on the CD Music from the University of North Texas Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia, CDCM Vol. 39 (2012).

  • Technical specs: 

    This work is for narrator, mixed choir, and computer music.

    The computer music may be played from a CD player or as audio files from a computer. In either case, it is
    imperative that there is absolutely no delay when each track is cued.
