The young Thomas Bernhard already had a more intimate acquaintance with death: Tuberculosis of the lungs forced him into long sanatorium stays where many died and where the “bird of death”, as he later called it, also sat on his shoulder. Elfriede Jelinek once wrote that his figure’s long monologues were a reaction to the author’s shortness of breath. Very early on, in the late 50ies, Bernhard published a few volumes of poems in rapid succession, including “In Hora Mortis” in 1958: Here, in the hour of death a lyrical ‘I’ calls to a listener, desperate, tortured, wounded and lonely. The “you” is God who seems to have turned away in the face of death and thus needs to be implored all the more urgently. With their anger and momentum, these poems are wonderful reference for reciters. Anna Maria Sturm has chosen this lyrical cycle. She was employed at the Munich Intimate Theatre and has repeatedly given a special character to television films. The jazz clarinettist Wanja Slawin will play around her presentation with his own compositions. With this, the two artists continue what Enjoy Jazz has often successfully staged: an encounter between the spoken word and music.
