Notes & Reviews:

"The beautifully recorded disc is sonically pure and acoustically realistic; its natural, unadulterated sound quality is excellent for capturing the visceral element of Stockhausen's music. The three Klavierstücke have a timbral inventiveness that grew out of the sensitivities the composer had developed in his work in electronic music in the early 1950s. They are highly abstract, but are never random-sounding -- it's always possible to discern the musical logic that runs through them...Volker Hemken's remarkable performance of 'In Freundschaft' is notable for his ability to alternate between melodies in the clarinet's extreme high and low ranges with virtually no break, creating the illusion of two instruments playing, and for his control of the loudest and softest dynamics... Schleiermacher's and Hemken's spirited performances and MDG's outstanding sound make this a recording that should be of strong interest to Stockhausen fans." -All Music Guide
