Krönung (Coronation)

Notes & Reviews:

Wergo’s focus with this new CD entitled Coronation is not on blue blood or kingly power, but in organic processes - the music on this CD sends up its shoots and produces blossoms like crowns. (co)ro(na), by Vykintas Baltakas, springs from a cascade of motivic branchings, its roots in a cycle of works named after the alchemical Ouroboros, a snake that swallows its own tail. Its dragon’s blood, so the legends say, is cinnabar red - like the hue that shines in Cinnabar by Rebecca Saunders. Magnus Lindberg’s Joy expresses itself through its profl igacy with spectral harmonies and the resonant snapping of the strings of a demolished piano. Thalleïn by Iannis Xenakis creates sieves that proliferate until they transform into archaic dances, refulgent with the brass tones.
