The Rest is Silence: Music of Our Time - Works by Hans Abrahamsen, Uri Caine, Luciano Berio, Mauricio Kagel, Arvo Pärt et al. / Various Artists

Notes & Reviews:

Music of our time is often said to be solely intellectual, inharmonious, and inaudible to human ears. It is due to ignorance and prejudice that contemporary classical compositions are living an unjustly shadowy existence. This new album offers the opportunity to get acquainted with music around the turn of the millennium. Mauricio Kagel, famous for his visionary sounds, condenses the atmosphere of our times into new sonorities in an enjoyable, humorous, and sometimes satirical way. A form of new romanticism is the keyword for Fumio Yasuda's work, and Hans Abrahamsen is counted among the representatives of the new simplicity. This album is not made for specialists of new music; rather, it is an invitation to overcome a fear of the unknown!
