Since I have had children, the thoughts about the world in which we live, won't let go of me. So I’ve thought about this question "What is there, where there is nothing left?" and I still ask daily and it seems that this question will never quite let me go. Within this context and as third further part of the Symphonies No. 1 and 2., the Symphony No. 3 was created. I don't understand how the Apocalypse as the final part, that stopped all the acts as described in the Christian mythology is explained. For me it describes the inability of mankind much more, to finally pacify those planets. I keep asking myself, how can it be possible that those single powerful individuals can make their own people more wise, that wars and exploitation of others for the preservation of own security is necessary. One question that overall all religions should ask themselves.To illustrate this, I asked the Swiss writer Arthur Honegger to write a poem as an introduction to the performance, and on the other hand, to write the words for a children's choir in the third, fourth and fifth set. In this text, children make accusatory questions to the generations before them. To illustrate this fact, I composed the final as a huge gap in which the main themes of all three previous symphonies, in the joint implementation as a triple Fugue are processed.
