Even the premiere of Lamento (2002) for violoncello, which contributed Alois Bröder to the Darmstadt Ash Wednesday, had to offer beautiful and gentle with an ubiquitous four-tone bridge from sound sighs. The mourning-jingle brought by Christoph von Erffa in all flageolettric overtones to shining was a quotation, which is in such a way in the harmony genes that one does’nt know anymore, from where one knows it exactly.
