Marche fatale

This is the way the world ends. Not with a whimper but a bang. If ever we needed proof that 2018 will bring Götterdämmerung… And who better to bring down the curtain on Trump, May, neoliberalism, a certain 'love's dream', upon everything really, than Helmut Lachenmann? Listen, I implore you, to these six minutes. And do not doubt, for one second, that Lachenmann this is.

A bit of Tristan there about 30 seconds from the end as well!

Yes! I can't believe I missed the 'Tristan'! How embarrassing!
-- I think my uneasy laughter must have drowned it out! :-)

Listening belatedly to this, I heard "Hitler, he only had one ball" as well.
