Notes & Reviews:

Giacinto Scelsi was regarded as something of an exotic phenomenon throughout his life, all because he refused to fragment the tonal material in the manner propagated by the aerialists of the Darmstadt school, instead experimenting with a most highly individual, energy-charged sound stream.

His works develop from improvisational cells but are notated with the greatest meticulousness and call on the well-versed members of the Ensemble Avant-garde to perform it in an accurate and informed manner.

Giacinto Scelsi's unique musical world fines a good home with the Ensemble Avant-garde. This is hardly surprising since the great Steffen Schleiermacher himself, a tireless advocate of contemporary music, is pulling the artistic strings here.
