Symphony No. 1 "Fogli"

"I beg the listener to be prepared for surprises…!" This dictum of Wilhelm Killmayer about his symphonies reads like a request for openness and understanding with which qualities one should always come encounter his works - they seem so fragile in a period that likes to adorn itself with the "event" character of music. Killmayer inherited from his teachers Walter von Waltershausen and Carl Orff a concept of music that defines music as the vocabulary of the most elemental acoustical signals and communication means. In this sense Killmayer´s music forswears doctrinaire attitudes, persuasiveness and loudness. His language is that of subjectively urging speech, which is occasionally countered by moments of musical standstill, a kind of "time emptying" of music. Long before the buzzword "post-modern" began making the rounds, Killmayer was already composing post-modern works in which an associative musical language also constantly assumed and integrated familiar and historical material.
