Notes & Reviews:
It is all too easy to dismiss the work of Lachenmann as "musica negativa," in the manner that term was used by Hans Werner Henze in his attack on the composer. Lachenmann's music forces the listener to confront and question their ingrained expectations from, and responses to, music in an attempt to extend and further illuminate one's powers of perception. Schreiben, for orchestra, and Double (Grido II), the string orchestra version of his third string quartet, are perfect examples of Lachenmann's approach to musical material and his idea of music.
