Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Schnyder composed "Krisis" as an introduction to Metamorphosen divided into three parts, describing the emotional state of many people after the tragic events of 9/11. The Age of Darkness and Sorrow reflecting the hollowness and anxiety directly after the catastrophe. The Days of Rage and Ire, this c-minor fugue represents the rage and grief leading to revenge and retaliation. Prayer and Transformation leads to hope for better times, a change in humanity to the better. The desire than mankind after the long age of darkness and polarization may finally build a new future together."

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Krisis, a 16-minute response to the 9/11 attacks, is in three movements, 'The Age of Darkness and Sorrow', 'The Day of Rage and Ire', and 'Prayer and Transformation'. Psalm is a setting for soprano and orchestra of several mourning lines from the Psalms. The sung line is lyrical, and the writing is more chromatic and twisting than in Krisis, closer to German Expressionism; a few passages have a pseudo- Baroque feel, similar to the fugue in Krisis. The performances are quite good; brief notes in English.
