Salvatore Sciarrino - Quaderno di Strada / Klangforum Wien - S. Cambreling

Collection: Vocal Collection

Light and air in a state of constant, subtly detailed movement: this is also the nature of Sciarrino‘s music, as if it had soaked up all those delicate colours and adopted the mobility of air, captured its nocturnal buzzing-sounds with a net veil and transformed them into fluctuating sonorities, roaring and murmuring. One could almost think that the flickering odours of Mediterranean landscapes had entered the fleeting images of such music. Vague suggestions emerging from an old cultural realm, transposed into the present, lingering briefly and then disappearing once more. An interplay of sound and silence, free-floating fragments no longer within the domain of the unambiguous: one listens to them spellbound. (Lothar Knessl)

...finally exploding in a sea of profundity from which the first words rise. Just like Baudelaire, Luca Francesconi appears to be crying out in the apparent stasis in the middle of the work: “The beautiful life! The beautiful life!” Then everything is reversed in a mirror process, with the energy being reborn of its own antimatter, or perhaps of its memory.

Gösta’s disinterest in homogenous, unified forms results in swift transitions between sonic states. Non-repetition. “I define sound in terms of structure, not in terms of expressivity.” In this, the sound-and thus probably also its sensuosity, in a gradual, carefully way-is compositionally lent weight in L‘oubli... “via the use of the harp and the keyboard instruments accordion and piano, as well as by exploiting string colours.” Such apparitions of colour change rapidly, fluctuate.

Anne Quirynen video

The interstices are what fascinate artists. Interzone is one such interstice. The title is taken from the book of the same name by William S. Burroughs. It refers to the Moroccan city of Tangier, which was declared an 'international zone' in The Fez Treaty of 1912, thus remaining an undefined space, a zone of indeterminacy, sometimes also of lawlessness. An artificial world, and a world of art, that - not least among literary figures - took on an almost mythical significance. With Interzone, Poppe has broken new ground in his output. It is the product of a triangular relationship between a poet, a composer and a video artist. The complex, multi-layered nature of such a relationship is already indicated by the history of the work‘s composition. A work in progress whose genesis encompassed two years and a constant exchange between all parties involved with numerous changes, as a result of which a great deal of material was discarded, replanned, reconceived and gradually condensed from an idea into a concrete manifestation.

Beat Furrer’s works leave no doubt that someone is at work here (on himself), whose appreciation of sound and radical rejection of all-too-plausible contextual aesthetics brought forth an altogether distinct language, moving, boldly layered sounds. ensemble recherche provides listeners this exemplary experience.

Music to hear is characterised by the rhetoric of musical diction: an alternation of tension and relaxation, clearly defined metrics, main themes, the alternation of stressed and unstressed tempi, a comprehensibility of figures, and generally the use of figures at all... (Frank Gerhardt)

Gérard Grisey - Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil

Gérard Grisey - Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil
ID: KAI0012252

... As only few other composers, Gérard Grisey was a master at working in these various "altidudes", one who skilfully zoomed back and forth between micro- and macro-time, or, in Grisey's beautiful imagery, between human time and the extended time of whales and the extremely compressed time of insects. and this disposal of time, of the hearing perspevtive - Grisey certainly knew it - affords the music a power that touches on the metaphysical just as the texts of "Quatre chants" do. "Fertilised with time, the music is afforded the power of the sacred of which Georges Bataille speaks; mute and silent forces that invoke and exorcise the sound and its emergence - perhaps and only for a moment.

Sabine Lutzenberger mezzosoprano
Klangforum Wien / Sylvain Cambreling conductor

The Stars of Hunger, was composed in 2007. It is based on three poems by the Austrian poet Christine Lavant: “Im rueckgrat aufwaerts glimmt ein licht,” “So also geht erleuchtung vor,” “Zeig an mir die kräuter welche bestärken” and “Lösch aus mein gesicht und führe mich blind.” Rather than set the poems themselves to music, Lang used the text generation program Abulafia to produce from them a cut-up in the tradition of William S. Burroughs. The composition contains only fragments of the poems, but both the invocational gestures and the characteristic language of these lyrical works -“Ginsterlicht,” “Schlüsselblick,” “mondversippt,” “der Schlaf steht duftend und gesalbt”- remain recognizable. Lang augments the four movements devoted to the Lavant poems by an instrumental introduction and two variations on Guillaume de Machaut’s rondo Ma fin est mon commencement. The identification of beginning and an end, as indicated in the text’s title line, shows that repetition was an issue even as long ago as Machaut’s day. But while this line is enough to conjure up an era during which the belief in life after death was still unquestioned (Machaut died in 1377), Lavant’s poems articulate this belief solely via their rebellion against the suffering of living creatures.

Monadologie VII shows us a familiar and yet strange landscape, a musical topography bereft of a dramaturgy; again and again, the musical events grind to a halt, get stuck. In these brief moments of empty repetition, it is as if one could abandon every plan and every objective without the slightest loss. It is such moments that give rise to dimensions within which the difference between present and past transforms itself into a musical experience. (Sabine Sanio)
