World Premiere of Agata Zubel's Outside the Realm of Time at Donaueschinger Musiktage

Oct. 12, 2022

Led by Pascal Rophé, the SWR Symphonieorchester, the SWR Experimentalstudio, and members of the SWR Big Band perform the world premiere of Agata Zubel's Outside the Realm of Time on October 12 at the Baar Sporthalle in Donaueschingen. Commissioned by Südwestrundfunk, the piece is based on Marcel Proust's novel in seven volumes, "In Search for Lost Time", a work about passing time, memories, storing images in one’s memory, forgetting, and the passing of time. In Zubel's composition, the texts are performed by the soprano soloist's hologram (Zubel herself) – an apt reference to an image that is in one's memory and thus not fully real. The performance will be livestreamed on October 14.
