Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The timing could not be better. In March Hans-Joachim Hespos celebrates his sixty-fifth birthday, and CPO is now releasing a new production with solo works by him from 1969-96. A birthday present, if you will. Hespos has his committed fans and foes, and that is the way things should be. One thing is certain: Hespos, more so than other composers, requires interpreters who think and feel along with him, and that makes this CD a stroke of good luck!
Personnel: Stefan Schäfer (double bass); Matthias Kaul (percussion).
