Three witches, fog and a prediction. The colors of this new music to work on, received by Gerhard Hallstatt (Allerseelen) were immediately clear. The rhythm is pressing like a freezing Valpurga night. The voices of the three witches (the three Fates? The Gray Sisters?) are obsessive and heralds of inevitable destinies. As always, once again, a work with Allerseelen is an experience beyond singing, it is a theatrical performance.
“If you can look into the seeds of time
And say which grain will grow, and which will not
Speak than to me
Look into the seeds of time
And say which grain will grow
And which will not
Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
hover through the fog
and filthy air”
From: The Tragedy of Macbeth. William Shakespeare 1623
