Notes & Reviews:

This collection of five discs represents the major compositions of Xenakis - master of the symphony orchestra. Some of his works are vital scores of the orchestral repertoire, such as Jonchaies, Lichens, Aïs and Synaphaï. This is a perfect and, in fact, unique kaleidoscope in the record catalogue, of what will have been Xenakis' inestimable contribution to orchestral music in the latter half of the 20th century. Arturo Tamayo and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra are past masters of his works and, on several occasions, have given 'all-Xenakis' concerts, in particular at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.
