Michael Schneider
Gand (2005)
for baritone solo
The originally intended world-premiere venue for this piece at the Mongolian 'Roaring Hoofs' festival left me searching for an adequate text to suit this special location. And so I turned to the Central Swiss world of legends, whose archetypical elements are found in similar forms in many areas of the world: Rules that must be obeyed to appease the wrath of nature/gods - the blessing, which protects one's property from evil - the forbidden crossing of frontiers, which leads to punishment. The mountain herdsman sings an 'Alpsegen' or mountain prayer each evening in order to pull a symbolic blanket of protection over the alp, a 'golden ring' that serves to protect man, animal and property from evil. A mountain prayer form Urnerboden sounds twelve times in this piece, perambulating the circle of fifths thus symbolically closing the blessed circle. Spectral glissandi, outbreaks of 'fury' and a wave of catharsis develop out of the mountain prayer's three-tone motives - archetypical consequences of crime and punishment. The fatalistic punishment following sin is completed after 12 systems of notation: the circle closes. In order to symbolically define the mountain prayer's 'golden ring', the singer can (ad lib.) trace a circle around the audience during the performance. Out of regard for the underlying tradition, this piece can be performed outside; the acoustics should not be too dry if performed in a concert hall. The title 'Gand' (known in the dialect native to the canton of Uri as 'Geröllhalde') stands as a symbol to the fatalistic world of sung legend.

EIS EROTA (2002)
for soprano, baritone, horn, two trumpets, trombone, percussion and strings
Texts: Altgriechisch
Sappho and Alkaios from the isle of Lesbos are amongst the most prestigious representatives of Greek lyrics strongly connected with the Orpheus saga. After the heavenly singer has lost his beloved Eurydice to the underworld and, spurned by his endless mourning, he seeks the love of other women. Bacchante tear him to pieces in an angry rage and cast his head into the sea. The tide washes it onto the shores of Lesbos - here his mouth is once again brought to speech by the lyric of the island.
Mythological notions merge with personal experience and sufferance in connection with the erotic. Eros is the ‘weirdest God’ (Alkaois) whose effect is to rip open the abyss between the highest fulfilment and the degeneration towards death. The elemental force with which he encompasses man awakes in him an orpheic longing for immortality and the desire to overcome the underworld; simultaneously bringing even more painfully the forlornness of his wish to consciousness. While Alkaios attempts to forget in wild drunkenness and sexual indulgence, we eavesdrop on Sappho, and the dark tones of a wish for love in which pain resonates with the transient.
EIS EROTA combines fragments from both poets to produce a dialogue on the subject of love and death.

Oracula Sibyllae (2008)
for soprano, baritone, flute and percussion
After texts from 'Oracula Sibyllina' and Vergil's 'Aeneid' (adaptation of CARMEN SIBYLLAE and ORATIO SIBYLLAE).
'Oracula Sibyllae' is the combination of two works that deal with the sibyls: Carmen Sibyllae for baritone and percussion and Oratio Sibyllae for soprano and flute. The ancient books 'Oracula Sibyllina' contain the prophecies of the Sibylla which, engulfed by divine powers, utters her usually unrequested and fatal predictions.

Max E. Keller
Vom Grunde (2003)
for baritone and piano
Texts: Barbara Köhler
One can accept or rebel against tradition, for once I have accepted it and, without dislocation, composed a poem. Barbara Köhler wrote texts about the river Elbe - quiet, melancholic and with a pinch of antidote, particularly nice in the poems chosen by me.

Uf Ärde (2003)
for baritone solo
Composed for the Roaring Hoofs in Mongolia, this short solo piece is an inverted variation on the lied ‘S Vreneli ab em Guggisbärg’, which begins vastly removed from the folksong but gradually approaches it until the original finally sounds.

Max E. Keller
Ruh' (2011/12)
for soprano and violoncello (or soprano and baritone)
Texts: Max E. Keller
As with many of my compositions, Ruh' (calmness) is based on a richly varied yet simple and easy-to-follow model. Soprano and violoncello continuously find calmness on a quiet unisono, an octave or double octave paraphrased on tonal, rhythmical or sound colour levels. This is followed by a "solo" or "a due" break out into turbulent fields - sometimes also indicated in the lyrics - and the return to a resting tone. Almost like in real life.
