Lied der Lieder (Canto VIII), oratorio for soli, choir, orchestra and live-electronic music

“Shir hashirim ashira li shlomo”, the “Song of Songs” is heard at the beginning, sung in Hebrew, the title. At first, written in the score, a Koan, a Zen Buddhist maxim.... The composition Shir Hashirim is basically open, but it is not undefined. It is a result of Hans Zender‘s reflections over a period of many years concerning technical, compositional questions, which have led to an independent system of harmonics, here carried out for the first time. His works since then all have an unmistakable compositional stamp. (Isabel Mundry)

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron
ID: KAI0012672
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: New Music

When Johannes Maria Staud refers in a commentary to one of his works to the pre-Socratic philosopher Anaximander and the latter’s contrasting pair of concepts apeiron (unlimited or infinite) and peras (limited or finite), he outlines a fundamental problem: the conflict between associative invention and logical development. The two compositions of the same name, however, are less suited to separate the two aspects of this relationship than to explore the various priorities between them. (Daniel Ender)

Includes booklet with texts by Daniel Ender, Durs Grünbein and Johannes Maria Staud

Born in 1974, Austrian composer Johannes Maria Staud has established a solid international career, including a substantial presence in the U.S., as featured guest composer at Tanglewood, and with a three-year residency with the Cleveland Orchestra. Apeiron, the highlighted work on this disc, is scored for a massive orchestra of 101 players, and while it has moments of gossamer delicacy, when Staud pulls out all the stops, he makes good use of all 101 players to create music of cataclysmic power. The title is taken from a cosmological theory developed by Greek philosopher Anaximander to describe the primal chaos that embraced and incorporated all things, and from which all things developed, and it's an apt metaphor for the sound of the music itself. Staud has said that the development of his pieces is organic rather than architectural, and Apeiron has a spontaneity and unpredictability that's more viscerally gripping than analytically explicable. Apeiron is the most intriguing and engaging piece.

Subcollection: Clarinet

I - that sacred time:
Cut to pieces by the media, drowned in over-information, measured in this age of zapping and clips, this time, the time which Bataille called ‘sacred’, the time of Art, Love and Creativeness, the instant when something unprecedented happens, can only be preserved by the artist if he completely resists this late 20th century environment. Paradoxically, however, these are precisely the rhythms which feed and inspire him. This is the only world which calls forth his questions. And so, the response to this discontinued flood of information will be a music finding its unity and continuity. Its wintry slowness will be the reversed echo of a stress-ridden world rushing towards its end.
II - Zwitschermaschine:
Think of whales, men and birds. When you hear the songs of the whales, they are so spaced out that what sounds like a gigantic, drawn-out and endless moan is perhaps only one consonant to them. This means that it is impossible to perceive their speech with our constant of time. Similarly, when we hear a bird sing, our impression is that it sounds very high-pitched and agitated. for its constant of time is much shorter than ours. It is difficult for us to perceive its subtle variations of timbre, while it may perceive us, perhaps, as we perceive the whales. (Gérard Grisey)
