WOLFGAG RIHM - Trios 1969-1994

WOLFGAG RIHM - Trios 1969-1994
ID: KAI0012892
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

This CD combines pieces for three instruments, trios - and yet it is very remote from the contemplatively muted frame-work of traditional chamber music. The small group of musicians does not establish intimacy, but causes the gaps, warpings, abysses in Rihm's music to widen even further instead. When the three instrumentalists position themselves as far away from each other in the calm scene "am horizont" (on the horizon), this is only an external sign for the extreme tension that prevails: delicacy of sound and wild noise, falling silent and eloquence, conglomeration and decomposition - accompanied by covert (auto)biographical allusions to Ingeborg Bachman or Karlheinz Stockhausen, Rudi Stephan or Maurizio Kagel.

Misato Mochizuki - Si bleu, si calme - Klangforum Wien - Johannes Kalitzke

Misato Mochizuki - Si bleu, si calme - Klangforum Wien - Johannes Kalitzke
ID: KAI0012402
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

Si bleu, si calme: The natural cycles of water and air are the underlying ideas of "Si bleu, si calme": condensation and evaporation, winds and currents. "Bleu" (blue) stands for the elements air and water, and "Calme" (calm) refers to space and silence. In musical terms, the complex "Bleu" tends toward development and growing complexity, while "Calme" works on the simplification of intervals and rhythmical figures.

MANUEL HIDALGO - Hacia

MANUEL HIDALGO - Hacia
ID: KAI0012982
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Concertmaster: Judita Haeberlin, Barbara Bultmann

The pieces of this cd are new compositions of Manuel Hidalgo and arrangements of works by Ludwig van Beethoven. Hidalgo was born in Atequera in 1956 and was a student of Helmut Lachenmann.
A glance at his catalogue of works reveals Hidalgo’s intense interest in the “Beethoven the giant,” whose music-alongside that of Mozart-has accompanied him since childhood. His Beethoven arrangements range from the Scherzo of the Symphony No. 9 op. 125 to the Heiliger Dankgesang op. 132 for voices, and from the Introduction and Fugue of the Hammerklavier Sonata op. 106 for accordion and orchestra to the variation movement from Beethoven’s Piano Sonata op. 109. The latest addition to this group of works is the Bagatelles. (Patrick Hahn)

Dufourt’s works typically appear to be something like the slow differentiation of an overarching “structural sound” (Lachenmann), like a “texture which tears apart and grows back together again, albeit with a unified note that prevents the work from disintegrating.” Here, harmonic objects are endlessly weighed, turned over, put under a magnifying glass, stretched, distorted slightly, filtered and rubbed to dust via instrumentation, with the fine line between chord and timbre drifting this way and that.

In his String Quartets Rueda exhibits, his special capacity for inextricably bringing together an array of compositional techniques and results, structure and instinctive feeling, a latent capacity for development and communication. The quartets of Jesús Rueda act as a renewal of the heartfelt consciousness to sense and feel music, something to which we have always been getting closer to. (Javier Arias Bal)

ALBERTO POSADAS - Glossopoeia

Due to the style in which he combines and joins his sonic material, Posadas’ compatriots often refer to his music as “Francophile”. Beyond the Pyrenees and above all in Francophone countries, where many doors of opportunity were opened to him (including by Festival d’Automne in Paris, Agora Festival (IRCAM), Strasbourg’s MUSICA and Brussels’ Ars Musica), the opposite is true: there, he is viewed as a genuinely Spanish composer due to the power and aplomb that emanate from even his more transparent masses of sound.

UNSUK CHIN - Xi

UNSUK CHIN - Xi
ID: KAI0013062
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Vocal and Piano

Like Xi and Fantaisie mécanique, the Double Concerto for prepared piano, percussion and ensemble (2002) was written for the Paris-based Ensemble intercontemporain. Its central compositional idea is that of combining its two antagonists - soloists and ensemble - to create a single homogeneous body of sound. While the soloists provide the impulse for the motivic cells, the ensemble takes up these cells and develops them further. Here too Unsuk Chin uses the idea of metamorphosis to realize a coherent musical texture that is nonetheless constantly growing The sonorities and the complex rhythmic layering of the piece are to some extent influenced by Balinese gamelan music. (Martin Demmler)
“I’ve tried to write music that’s highly coloured in character and expression, freely flowing and flexible, and which sometimes develops in entirely unexpected directions.”

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron
ID: KAI0012672
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: New Music

When Johannes Maria Staud refers in a commentary to one of his works to the pre-Socratic philosopher Anaximander and the latter’s contrasting pair of concepts apeiron (unlimited or infinite) and peras (limited or finite), he outlines a fundamental problem: the conflict between associative invention and logical development. The two compositions of the same name, however, are less suited to separate the two aspects of this relationship than to explore the various priorities between them. (Daniel Ender)

Includes booklet with texts by Daniel Ender, Durs Grünbein and Johannes Maria Staud


Born in 1974, Austrian composer Johannes Maria Staud has established a solid international career, including a substantial presence in the U.S., as featured guest composer at Tanglewood, and with a three-year residency with the Cleveland Orchestra. Apeiron, the highlighted work on this disc, is scored for a massive orchestra of 101 players, and while it has moments of gossamer delicacy, when Staud pulls out all the stops, he makes good use of all 101 players to create music of cataclysmic power. The title is taken from a cosmological theory developed by Greek philosopher Anaximander to describe the primal chaos that embraced and incorporated all things, and from which all things developed, and it's an apt metaphor for the sound of the music itself. Staud has said that the development of his pieces is organic rather than architectural, and Apeiron has a spontaneity and unpredictability that's more viscerally gripping than analytically explicable. Apeiron is the most intriguing and engaging piece.

Beat Furrer - Nuun

Beat Furrer - Nuun
ID: KAI0012062
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

The Austrian composer of Swiss origin considers his art to be a "view over the moving matter 'sound'": Beat Furrer does not develop sounds, he observes them, his music does not unfold dynamically with time, but attempts to rescind it: "No beginning", writes Furrer, "everything is present from the start". "nuun" thus filters out the individual layers of an initially almost impenetrable sound, as when you suddenly discover structures in a monochrome painting upon taking a closer look. Furrer then compares the sound dramaturgy of "still" with an electrical circular saw which when set into operation almost inaudibly unfolds greatest power and energy - until it encounters resistance.
