New single release :

“The Garden of Poets”

With three tracks, one of which is “Die Gräfin” based upon the story Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke (The Lay of Love and Death of Cornet Christoph Rilke).

In the autumn of 1899, it takes the then twenty-three-year-old Rainer Maria Rilke one single night to write this peculiar ‘short song in prose’ or ‘poetic narrative’. The result is a sensuous ‘fever dream’: It is 1664 and the young Christoph Rilke (a distant ancestor of the poet, Rainer Maria Rilke) travels as standard-bearer or ‘cornet’ with a small company of soldiers to the fortress of an Austrian count. The fair-haired cornet loses himself in a night of passion with the countess, and gallops towards a heroic death in a battle against the Turkish army. Rilke’s text inhabits, in every respect, an intermediary space: its prose sings; women have male traits, men, female traits; women are all at once mistress, mother, Virgin Mary and sensual ‘angel of death’.
