action; Death; Discipline; Suffering
These four prose-poems were written by the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, while a prisoner of the Gestapo for his complicity in the movement to rid Germany of the Nazi regime. They form part of the collection Letter and Papers from a Prison, which were discovered and published after his execution by the Gestapo in 1945.
Each ‚Station‘ is characterised by a key-word which the Jubert has matched with a corresponding musical interval. Thus ‚Discipline‘ is characterised by a 4th, ‚Action‘ by a major 7th, ‚Suffering‘ by a major 2nd and ‚Death‘ by a perfect 5th.
