This work is an orchestral transcription of da capo (mit Fragmenten aus W. A. Mozarts Fragmenten) composed in 2014 for cimbalom, marimba and chamber ensemble. The new version was commissioned by the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg to mark its 175th anniversary.The initial tunes come from Mozart’s notebooks. They are fragments, ideas for themes, which in their majority did not result in finished compositions. Péter Eötvös presents these tunes to listeners in a clearly recognisable way, but he immediately develops and transforms them. Further ideas have been born from Mozart’s ideas: astounding games with consonant and dissonant unisons, special tone surfaces and exciting tunes. Yet they already go beyond stylistic play and do not belong to Mozart, rather Péter Eötvös’s own world of music. These are his own thoughts in the dialog with Mozart.
