Weg – A Scenic Moratorio


Ensemble ad lib., 4 speakers/clowns, solo-instr. ad.lib

UA: 30/5/1970, Pro Musica Nova, Bremen,

This theatre piece (for which I wrote and compiled the texts myself) is closely linked to my text “Bouvard and Pecuchet compose”.

Four clowns represent Stockhausen, Kagel, Boulez and Henze. During the first performance, Kagel quit the hall furiously, crying “undignified!”. Luigi Nono was delighted.
