New release

Xiayong Chen: Qian & Yan

Xiaoyong Chen’s compositions are, in a manner of speaking, “west- eastern travelling parties”: to the classical inventory of European instruments, he introduces the sounds of Chinese instruments that have several thousands of years of history to them. As part of this process, Chen asks: “Will the art of the future be based on tradition?”, only to add, matter-of-factly: “If so, why?” Find the album right here.

Thomas Wally: Jusqu'à l'aurore

The compositions of native Viennese Thomas Wally (1981), which the fabled Mondrian Ensemble have so marvelously put down on this, the composer’s first portrait recording, might just be considered the dawn of the latest in new music. We can marvel at the unique language and character in Wally’s works from the last ten years and at his keen desire for experimentation and liberty which he combines with the utmost of conceptual seriousness.

Helmut Lachenmann

Allegro Sostenuto

Resonance and motion take center stage in Allegro Sostenuto. Lachenmann’s “idea of a musique concrète” bears remarkable fruit in Pression and Dal niente
Alban Berg

Songs from the Youth

Even before he became Arnold Schönberg’s student, Alban Berg wrote some 40 Jugendlieder, ’early lieder’: Romantic poetry as mirrored by the Fin de Siècle. 
Vinko Globokar

Eisenberg

Archaic sounds, songs as psychodramas, plowing through the depths and shallows of the orchestra: experience Globokar’s cosmos of original, intense music.
