Enjott Schneider's composition for cor anglais, bassoon and strings was created in the form of a musical epitaph on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the death of the Bavarian King Ludwig II shrouded in legend. Quotations from works of the King's favourite composer, Richard Wagner, can be heard. At the same time, the picturesque motif of a romantically enigmatic Castle of the Grail, as created by Ludwig II with Neuschwanstein, is reflected in the musical make.
In the arrangement for chamber music duo, the work can be performed in concert with cor anglais and piano only. The version for cor anglais, bassoon and strings can be performed with both soloistic string instruments and in groups, for example as part of a school orchestra project.
