Notes & Reviews:

Wolfgang Rihm is one of the most performed, most discussed, most successful living German composers-and one of the most productive as well: he has written over 400 works. Rihm's "Donaueschingen Credo" of 1974-so bold for its time, has since lost none of its authority. This is a recording to be welcomed by all fans of twentieth-century music-a celebration of one of Europe's most extraordinary musical minds.

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
Rihm is not one of those seeking a new simplicity - but he embraces the unexpected, looking for a directional freedom that celebrates the unforeseen...'Music must be full of emotion, the emotion full of complexity' Rihm wrote in 1974... and these four first recordings are ample proof that it's an imperative he's been satisfying with brilliance and rare imagination ever since.
