Passagen (Passages) , for Flute, Viola and Violoncello
(in memoriam Walter Benjamin)
Flute, Viola, Violoncello
3 Min. 55 sec.
The piece is a reflection on the life and death of the philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin. I have chosen the title «Passagen» (Passages) in reference to Benjamin's «Passagen-Werk» and Dani Karavan's walkable landscape sculpture «Passagen» (Passages) in Portbou. Benjamin died there, fleeing from the Nazis, on September 26, 1940. Roger Faedi
