Ralf Yusuf Gawlick – Kinderkreuzzug, Op.13

$13.99 (1CD-Digipak)

World Première Recording

Ralf Gawlick’s 'Kinderkreuzzug', a cantata for children’s chorus and chamber ensemble, is a work at once eloquent and powerful. It casts an extraordinary spell over the listener, amplifying the poignant and tragic text of Bertolt Brecht in a raw and visceral way. The spectacle of three youth choirs, both individually and in combination, as well as their accompaniment by the sparest of instrumental combinations, powerfully conveys the subject of “war, and the pity of war” in the words of Wilfred Owen, the poet for Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, the work that Ralf Gawlick’s piece most directly evokes.
