York Höller was born in Leverkusen and studied from 1963–70 in Cologne with Bernd Alois Zimmermann, Herbert Eimert, and Alfons Kontarsky, among others. His participation in Pierre Boulez’s analysis seminars at the 1965 Darmstadt Summer Courses motivated him to explore serial music.

After temporary employment at the Bonn Opera House, he worked in 1971/72 in the West German Radio’s Studio for Electronic Music, whose artistic director he was from 1990 to 2000.

Höller has received numerous awards, and many works were written as commissions from prominent ensembles.

The works on this recording span many years of his compositions and are expertly performed by the Minguet Quartett accompanied by Markus Bellheim on piano.
