About

Kantrimiusik was premièred in April 2008 at Symphony Hall by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Oliver Knussen, with the same soloists, when Paul Griffiths was moved to say "a big and typically quizzical essay by Mauricio Kagel for singers and instrumentalists, exploring various notions of country music and countryside, all of them amusingly wrong."

"Taken as a whole, the 8 movements and 7 intermezzi of this pastoral music from many countries make up the kind of programme that is often presented - in expanded form - by those ensembles from the entertainment industry that belong to the Folklore Department (Arrangements division). Such evenings feature costumed 'family' groups with lots of children which, convinced that they are giving a genuine picture of a particular local region, express their solidarity exclusively through fake music. (How often one regrets that it is the fate of mouthpiece, and its entertainment.) It is precisely because of the pseudo-popular character of some movements of Kantrimiusik, with their vague, ambiguous folklore, that their presentation should not be similarly ambiguous. The piece deliberately makes no claim to authentic sources. On the contrary, it seeks to further foster apocryphal musical art. The degree of parody and caricature or self-conscious seriousness should already be clearly audible in any accurate musical interpretation." - Mauricio Kagel
