Fantasies (3) after Friedrich Holderlin
Sonata for solo viola
Susanne van Els (viola)
“In this performance [of Lux aeterna] by the astoundingly good Cappella Amsterdam it sounds more meditative and less apocalyptic than it did [in Kubrick's 2001], but no less haunting.” - The Telegraph
“If the title track is the big draw here, the Dutch choir does not disappoint. The sopranos are tightrope walkers on the eternal, steady high note, staggering their breaths for a seamless sound. The held, unresolving clashes are thrilling, a torment one never wants to end. Ligeti's Viola Sonata, the Drei Phantasien, offers similar pleasures where the tenors push singing close to shouting in the mighty fortissimo.” - The Times
