The sophisticated choral arrangements by Clytus Gottwald have found a place in concert life throughout the world. Now Gottwald has arranged two of Richard Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, "Im Treibhaus" and "Traume", for 16-voice choir a cappella. In his choral transcriptions Gottwald has transferred to traditional music the compositional techniques from new music which he developed during his long tenure as founder and director of the chamber choir Schola Cantorum. He makes audible the structures of the works he transcribes through the use of a finely differentiated sound.
