Margarita Höhenrieder – Emmanuel Pahud: Wie ein Traum am Rande der Unendlichkeit

Title: Wie ein Traum am Rande der Unendlichkeit – Weltersteinspielungen von Harald Genzmer

Catalogue No.: SM 159

Release: 12.09.2011


Harald Genzmer wrote the works for flute and piano presented here in 2003 and 2004, in the last years of his life.

His music is full of vigour and energy, humour and charm; it is timeless and life-affirming.

“When I am finally no longer on this planet, you will at least have something of me …”. With those words Harald Genzmer dedicated to Margarita Höhenrieder his last great work, a vision of parting “like a dream on the verge of endlessness”. It was also its express desire to specify this work with probably at present the best Flute-player Emmanuel Pahud.

When Margarita Höhenrieder was with him a few days before his death, he was above all interested in her artistic plans, including the premiere of the Fantasie des Abschieds with Emmanuel Pahud. Almost incidentally, he pointed to several sheets of music on his desk: studies for flutes he had just composed. The notation was so clear that one could have played them at sight. She was deeply touched. “What can I do for you?” was her last question to him. His answer: “Play my works!”
