Markus Zahnhausen's Lux Aeterna belongs to a very special category in my repertoire. The tender and dangerous beauty of his music has fascinated me for years. In a contemporary musical language Zahnhausen has managed to bring the instrument back to what it once was: flauto - the flute! His expressive music never takes the instrument beyond its limits, thus avoiding the trap" of many a "modern" work. There is a perfect balance between form, content and idiomatic writing that places both his music and the recorder where they belong: in the hearts of the listeners! I have had a tremendous time when studying Lux Aeterna. I sometimes wondered whether I played the piece or the piece was playing me ..." Dan Laurin.
