Notes & Reviews:

Violin and viola players whisper over their instruments. A guitarist waits with the closest attention for the moment to make a gesture we might easily have missed. The tuba player rises to go over to the open piano, there to send sounds echoing into its interior. Two cellists, bowing with heavy pressure down near the tailpiece produce an urgent rasping. From the timpanist comes the sudden fortissimo that seems to shock the music a standstill...

Renowned German composer Helmut. Lachenmann's music expressive in extraordinary ways, as this description of Zwei Getuhle attests requiring the performers to play their instruments via unusual techniques.

Lachenmann performs in and supervises theses recordings with Ensemble Signal, one of American's leading New Music ensembles. In addition to performing as narrator in "Zwei Getuhle," the composer is also the soloist for three of his piano works.

These studio recordings followed an intensive 4 concert tour of this program. Lachenmann taught each musician in Ensemble Signal his language of techniques individually for this project. Liner notes by Paul Griffiths. First in a series of Lachenmann on Mode Records.

The New York Times
The audience whooped and cheered after every work.
