Product Details


Z-4383 by Minas Borboudakis is a 12-minute work for large ensemble (1(=Picc).1.1(=BCl).1 — 1.1.1(=BTbn).0 — 2Perc — Acdn — Pf — Str( or String Orchestra) — Electronics). It describes the journey of the wagon of the same name in which the body of the politician and pacifist Grigoris Lambrakis, also called 'Z', who was murdered in 1963, was transported from Thessaloniki to Athens. In the scene from the cult novel Z by Vassilis Vassilikos, the author lets the soul of Grigoris Lammbrakis fly over the train. Train noises, distorted fragments of speech, as well as lines rising ever higher unfold in the music. Sequences expressing pain, longing, hope and despair return as wordless instrumental quotations, attempting to portray the unspeakable before the soul leaves the body at the work's conclusion.

The world premiere took place on 20 July 2018 with the Academy of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Carter.

The score (EP 14315) is available for sale as part of the Peters Contemporary Library. The performance material can be hired.
