After his hospitalization for a psychological break in the 1950's, Giacinto Scelsi began composing music that was radically different from his earlier, more conventional serial works. Based on explorations of tiny details of timbral variation, his new music defied categorization. His first new works are compelling examinations of repeated notes and their microtonal neighbors. His later pieces are lush sculptures of sound, placed carefully in a silent landscape. 'Okanagon,' is a microscopic observation of repeated low notes, juxtaposed at various angles. In some "views" the ensemble plays percussively on the sides of their instruments, giving the impression of a note magnified so largely that one can hear the individual pulses.
Though it may be difficult to relate Scelsi to other music, it is not without contemporary relevance. Ligeti's string quartets and Penderecki's "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" also employ drone and microtonality. Theirs are harsh cries to Scelsi's fascinated murmur, however.
This great collection, all from various stages of Scelsi's second period, shows the development of his style. Unconventional music always risks horrifying misinterpretation but Hans Zender and the Vienna Klangforum honor Scelsi's music with a reverence for timbre and space. The performances are excellent, and beautifully recorded.

Giacinto Scelsi - Natura Renovatur

Giacinto Scelsi - Natura Renovatur
ID: KAI0012162
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

With Natura renovatur, Anâgâmin and Elohim, pieces have been published dating back to the 60s that were hitherto difficult to approach and that show the out-sider's fascinating attempt to realize the "real spherical dimension of sound" using the means of an ensemble made up purely of strings. Persuasively interpreted by Klangforum Wien under Hans Zender.

Giacinto Scelsi - Action Music No. 1- Bernhard Wambach, piano

Giacinto Scelsi - Action Music No. 1- Bernhard Wambach, piano
ID: KAI0012312
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Giacinto Scelsi’s relationship with the piano is interesting and contradictory. For no other instrument has the Italian composer and poet composed so many pieces; to no other instrument does he seem so closely attached, both personally and biographically; and no other instrument disappeared so abruptly and finally from his scores as the piano, the European showcase instrument. With the piano, we can follow the break lines and developments in the musical thinking and works of Giacinto Scelsi, which are key to an understanding of his striking compositional development. As late piano compositions, Action music and Suite Nr. 8 mark a transition to Giacinto Scelsi’s new musical language: the exploration of the individual sound, the inclination to a sound-energetic agglomeration, the gesture of improvisation - all this is also clearly discernable in both his works.
