About

This CD is released in celebration of Helmut Lachenmann’s 80th birthday (27 November 2015). There are two separate Hybrid-SACDs on offer with the famous Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (ranking as number 6 in the world according to Gramophone magazine), and with outstanding soloists (Pierre-Laurent Aimard) and conductors (Jonathan Nott).

Times have changed when almost all soloists and even whole orchestras refused to play his works, as they felt anxious about damaging their instruments.

In reality they were not used to Lachenmann’s new musical language which asked for unusual playing techniques and a different kind of ensemble playing. At that time Neos's former label 'col legno' was a pioneer recording Lachenmann, and a lot of people told them they were crazy! It was clear to them however that they had to release some of his main orchestral works in view of this special occasion.
