‘It is impossible for humans to have only one feeling. We experience thousands of emotions all at the same time.’ Symphony of Expectation follows Schönberg’s line of thought and places a feminist pamphlet by Marie Pappenheim next to two iconic works from the 20th century: Sinfonia by Berio and Erwartung by Schönberg, which he composed on the basis of Pappenheim’s poem. From Pappenheim’s text to a multi-layered symphony and a monodrama: ‘that one second of maximum spiritual excitement’ experienced by the main female character is extended into an intense theatrical experience.
