Giacinto Scelsi - Yamaon, Anahit, I presagi / Klangforum Wien - Hans Zender

Giacinto Scelsi - Yamaon, Anahit, I presagi / Klangforum Wien - Hans Zender

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.

Kolektion: Vocal CollectionSubkolektion: Voices and Orchestra

Sophisticated formal strategies, a strict organisation of material, in a nutshell: with the greatest nonchalance, Staud draws on a secured intellectual foundation and on long-proscribed emotionality for his music. In his determination to express himself, the composer does not shy from highly expressive moments, excited cascades of sound, dynamic and strongly staggering commotions, or apparently self-reflective lyrical passages - and continuously subjects these to precise structural controls. A highly emotional approach, which at the same time is precisely calculated. For Staud, one of the key parameters in this calculation is the tonal quality of his music.

The composer Max Kuhn was born on 28 April 1896 - the year of Bruckner’s death, the year before Brahms’s - in Zurich, and he lived almost the whole of a long and active life in the vicinity of the city. After his school education he studied piano with Peter Fassbänder and organ with Fridolin Roth, and then from 1920 to 1921 was a student at the Zurich Conservatory. The influence of Ferruccio Busoni, who had spent a self-imposed exile in Zurich during World War I, was palpable at the Conservatory at this time. Kuhn studied conducting with Volkmar Andreae, a close friend of Busoni; counterpoint with Busoni’s pupil Philipp Jarnach; and composition with another Busoni pupil, Reinhold Laquai. Kuhn then spent five years, until 1926, in further studies in Vienna - becoming a pupil of Josef Hoffmann for piano, and of Richard Stöhr for counterpoint. By the time he returned to Switzerland, therefore, Kuhn was a highly qualified musician in several spheres; even so he went on in 1929 to take some conducting lessons from Felix Weingartner in Basel.

From the 1920s onward, Kuhn was based in Küsnacht, near Zurich, as organist and choir director at the Catholic church. In 1928 he founded the ‘Choir for modern Music’ - later to be known, under its subsequent conductor, as the Zurich Chamber Choir. In 1940 Max Kuhn helped to found the Mozart Society of Zurich, and he remained working in Zurich for many years as a conductor, pianist and organist. He also taught piano and music theory, not only privately but, from 1956 to until his retirement in 1972, at the Zurich Music Academy. Kuhn was spoken of as one of those Swiss composers who made a bridge in their work between Spanish and Swiss music, and between the Protestant North and the Mediterranean warmth of the South. He certainly had an attachment to the music of Spain, and especially the Canary Islands, which gave rise to his Piano Variations (1967) and the piano concerto entitled Concierto de Tenerife (1962), both available on other Guild recordings. In 1991, at the venerable age of 94, Kuhn moved to Ascona, on the Swiss shore of Lake Maggiore, where he died three years later.

According to the noted Swiss critic Willi Schuh, Kuhn’s was a ‘pronouncedly lyrical talent’, with songs and choral music occupying a place of importance in his output. Nevertheless he composed prolifically in a wide spectrum of genres, from operas to small piano pieces. Chris Walton has remarked that Kuhn ‘was rooted in the Swiss Protestant tradition’, but his musical language is an urbane synthesis of several 20th-century tendencies. Kuhn himself, in 1973, described the evolution of his musical language thus: ‘Before 1921, my works were rooted in traditional influences (Bach, Schubert, Wolf). The confrontation with Impressionism and the Second Viennese School and my encounter with Hindemith broadened my means of expression in matters of harmony and formal technique, and enabled me to go my own way (the use of extended tonality, polyphony, and linear counterpoint that takes into account the extended harmonic context)’.
