Notes & Reviews:

In the early 1960s, Wergo launched a series that would become a legend in the history of contemporary music recordings. Studio Reihe Neuer Musik featured some of the most important and cutting-edge compositions of the modern era. Some of these seminal recordings have never been released on CD and some have been unavailable in any form for many years. On the occasion of the label’s 50th anniversary, Wergo is releasing a selection of these gems from the early days of its 50-year history. The series starts with recordings of works by Bernd Alois Zimmermann and Christian Wolff.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Above all, the performances are imbued with the spirit and enthusiasm of the amazing community of musicians that surrounded experimentalism and John Cage. Despite its brevity, this recording is a gem that has been digitally remastered and will be an exciting addition to any collection of modern American music.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Dartmouth College, Hanover NH, USA (08/1971).
