By Ensemble Phorminx. By Helmut Lachenmann. Listening CD. Wergo #WER 66822. Published by Wergo (NX.WER-66822).
Item Number: NX.WER-66822
The musicians of the Ensemble Phorminx present central stations in Helmut Lachenmann's oeuvre: from "Pression" for solo cello of 1969 or the clarinet piece "Dal niente", "Toccatina" for violin, or "temA" for flute, voice and cello to the trio "Allegro sostenuto" of 1986-88. These stations can be categorized by central questions and problems of composition, but they just as emphatically document a constantly progressing development that never comes to a standstill, much less settles down into a â€œstyle.â€
If in works like "Pression" or "Dal niente" Lachenmann worked out his idea of a â€œmusique concrete instrumentaleâ€, in works like "Allegro sostenuto" he permitted a series of approaches to design and procedure that he had categorically excluded from his early works.
