Olga Neuwirth is fascinated by dual levels, mirrors, anamorphosis… Using as much material as possible, her Remnants of Songs are a true
amphigory. In contrast is Hindemith’s Trauermusik; Schoenberg, who had earlier followed such Freudian paths; Brahms, sculpting symphonic sound in Romantic expression.
