De-Qing Wen
Quatre poésies (1999)
for chamber orchestra (1.1.1.1/1.1.1.0/perc/hp.pf/1.1.1.1)
The four poems are inspired by the poetry of Li Bai (701-762) one of the greatest Chinese poets, who lived in the Tang dynasty. The titles of the four movements (The mountain; The women; The dream; The wine) correspond to the topics which Li Bai liked most in his life as a bohemian and which appear often in his poetry.
Chinese poetry has always had a strong connection with painting and music. The timbre of the rhymes, the sound of a word or a sentence, the rhythm of the verse and the number of the metrical feet are in a musical order and the lecture of a chinese poem gives the impression of a melody. It has to be mentoined that a long time ago the poems were written to already existing music. If somebody in China wants to express his admiration for a painting or a musical work, then the biggest compliment would be to call it poetic.

Thomas K. J. Mejer
Ahn - Nachtung (1994)
for chamber orchestra (2.2.2.2/2.2.0.0/8.6.4.4.3)
By means of careful shading, melodic timbres with minimal dynamic variations and individual tempi, an attempt is made, using meagre materials and subtle means of figuration, to re-enact the two-liner by M. Herbener ("Nacht, dem Tag unterlegt / Der einzige Ton darüber ein Strich"). The harmony remains aleatoric but within a 'modal' framework.

Die Elemente (2008)
for vocal ensemble (2.2.2.2) and instruments (1.1.2.0/2.0.2.0/2perc/2.2.2.2.0)
Texts: Eduard Mörike
The music of my piece 'Die Elemente' refers in a simple and immediately understandable way to the text in the poem of the same name by Eduard Mörike. This poem impressed me with its combination of raging elemental force and naive tenderness. Despite the biblical citation that Mörike adds as a motto, I find the essence of his poem more archaic-antique, like a Greek or Germanic myth.

Max E. Keller
wanawizzi (2011)
for chamber orchestra (2.2.2.2/2.2.0.0/str(6.5.4.3.2))
Our world full of preposterous contradictions: countless humans starve while there is enough food produced on earth to feed them...
wanawizzi (Old High German: Wahnwitz (Engl.: madness)) transforms such antagonisms into musical processes. Each of the 32 instruments acts independently, permanently repeating a particular rhythmical sequence that becomes ever more divided.
In stark contrast to this extraordinarily complex rhythmical mesh, the pitches remain constant, only shortly at first, then ever longer, and always on a dominant seventh chord.
