Music connects and creates identity and community and, like language, is part of the human living environment. Ernst Toch's “Fuge from Geography” shows that these two forms of expression can be wonderfully combined when he transfers the melodies and rhythms of language to the musical form. Gustav Mahler's piano quartet movement in A minor tells the story of searching and finding one's own musical language, which the sixteen-year-old composed with youthful enthusiasm and great awe for his even greater role model Johannes Brahms. Words and language accompanied Mahler throughout his life; he was always surrounded by books. In one he found the poems of Friedrich Rückert. The musical transmission of this poetry uses subtle tones to evoke man's separation from the world. From the poetry of words to the language of the body: Matthew Shlomowitz has been composing his “Letter Pieces” since 2007, combining physicality and sound. Johannes Brahms, on the other hand, experienced how difficult it can be to find words and sounds. He worked on his Piano Quartet No. 3 in C minor for over two decades. With the autobiographical work he expressed moments of deepest despair and let the music speak when words were no longer enough.
