Performer Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Dithyrambe Concerto for String Quartet & Orchestra consciously does without the classic concerto form. Instead of a dialogue between the string quartet and the orchestra, we have a positively manic monologue. As for the other pieces featured on this disc, "I wanted to write a sister work for the one that already existed," says Rihm. "Or a brother work? Sotto voce is a slow, relatively quiet piece. Sotto voce 2 is something like an answer to it - another answer, so to speak, a fast movement, a motion-filled piece that whispers. It has to do with motion sequences and with velocity."
