«If something else works – do it!»

Peter Maxwell Davies and Roy Hart’s Eight Songs for a Mad King

Anne-May Krüger
Knowledge about the narrow cooperation between composers and irreplaceable interpreters in the creation of ground-breaking works is greater than before. However how can informations about historical models serve contemporary interpretations instead of paralysing the artistic process? In the light of the Eight Songs one will discuss how yet unpublished audio documents with the original performer Roy Hart can be linked with the written sources and made productive for the practice of interpretation.
