Notes & Reviews:
The Requiem for a young poet, "a lingual for speakers, soprano and bass soli, three choirs, orchestra, jazz combo, organ, and electronic sounds, to texts from various poets, features and news reports", is a late masterpiece of its composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann (1918-1970). In the piece, Zimmermann, one of Germany's leading composers of the post-World War II era, arrives at a totality: a summation of his own biography and also a summation of the intellectual situation of his (life)time, the 50 or so years between the October Revolution and the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Soviet troops.
