Notes & Reviews:

When it comes to modern music, Het Collectief is considered one of Europe's finest ensembles. Their first disc on Zig-Zag Territoires finds the ensemble returning to the roots of the modern repertoire, interpreting Webern's Passacaglia and, with soprano Katrien Baert, Berg's Sieben fruhe Lieder and Zemlinsky's Maeterlinck Gesänge, and all in transcriptions for chamber ensemble as conceived by Reinbert de Leeuw, conductor, pianist, composer, teacher, founder of the famous Schönberg Ensemble and eminent contemporary music personality.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The performances here are quite good; The Collective is excellent, and Belgian soprano Baerts has a lovely voice. People who, like me, love music of this period and aesthetic will find something interesting here. Notes, texts, translations.
