This CD presents three of Wolfgang-Andreas Schultz’s works inspired by Zen Buddhism, all created in relatively close succession: the String Quartet No.3 ‘Landscape of Listeners - Four People’ of 2004/05, the quartet ‘Images at the Bottom of the Lake’ (2009/10) based on the idea of a Japanese flautist playing at a lakeside or in a boat, and ‘Japanese Foggy Landscape’ for flute, the shapes of which remain half-hidden through quartet tones, swaying rhythms and a sound that includes, as with Japanese flutes, noise elements.

The composer Wolfgang-Andreas Schultz was born in Hamburg in 1948. His interest in the cultures of the Far East - and particularly in traditional Japanese culture - began towards the end of his schooldays in the early 1960s.
