Liner Notes
Written by Mikesch van Grümmer

This music is inspired by drawings and plastics of the German sculptor, graphic designer and poet Ernst Barlach (1870-1938). The music does not pretend to interpret Barlach’s work, but without it none of the compositions would have been created al all (except for “Liebespaar II”).

Barlach meant to “create visions”. To him the underlying principal for all was the “mystical view”. In this way the connection between Barlach’s work can be explained by quoting the phrases Baruch used to judge his own work: “Have these creations come alive? Is the process a logical one? Did the physical experience become envisioned?…” Wow the question of “what should be visualized by all this?” Has become irrelevant.

(M. van Grümmer)
