There is nothing ordinary in Kagel's music: the selection of orchestral pieces assembled on this collage CD ranges from Les ides fixes, his rondo for orchestra that appears so harmless at first sight, to the wonderfully bustling Opus 1.991. Neither in his music nor in any other discipline Kagel ever intended to adhere to a specific trend, or curb his creativity through specialization. "The deliberate break, the joining of the incommensurable, irritation through ambiguity, are Kagel's true vocation, one which he pursues with great delight in disguises and multihued iridescent role-play." (Ulrich Dibelius) Les ides fixes (1988-89) recalls traditional forms: five rondos meet one another while thematically encompassing the whole world, from ragtime to suggestions of waltzes and Eastern folk music. No less than four pianos are needed for Kagel's Musik fr Tasteninstrumente und Orchester (1987-88), whereas Opus 1.991 (1990) works with philosophical references (to Hegel's "abstract subjectivity") and evokes cinematographic reminiscences. And the master of tricky rhythms himself handles the baton to perfection!

Recommendation
Maderna’s oboe concertos: a remarkable amalgamation of serialism, polyphone interweavings, sound poetry and delicate lyricisms. 
As fascinating as ever: Cerha’s monumental opus Spiegel, in which he "investigates fundamental phenomena of musical creation." 
Three briliant concerts of the Czech composer Ladislav Kubk on one CD!
