Notes & Reviews:

A tendency to focus on internal processes has emerged in the music of the last few decades. This disc features compositions on that theme by Mark Andre, Kaija Saariaho and Ian Willcock. Andre was seeking existential sonic situations on his path “toward the inside” (or nach innen, to quote the writtenout title of his piece “ni”). Like Andre, Saariaho has also delved into the internal nature of sound. Her rich variety of spectral harmonies tells an old story in a new way: a violin concerto that portrays the legend of the grail. Willcock’s piece visits the discoverer of the unconscious, Sigmund Freud, on his deathbed. Freud’s glimpses of the “inside” showed that sometimes there is more to be found there than the truth.
