Notes & Reviews:

"Thomas Larcher has a way of convincing you, like Morton Feldman, that every note is in its right place and should be nowhere else. A delicate touch and taut use of dramatic contrast flicker across his compositions, sending out shards of notes and icy silences Mumien for cello and piano is the gem on this CD. Larcher literally unwraps the piece with pounding prepared piano at the outset as cellist Thomas Demenga slices through the music's dense layers to reveal a fading heartbeat beneath the Egyptian mummy's bandages. This is meaty stuff, starkly outlined by ECM's characteristically crisp and clear recording." -Gramophone
