Self-sacrifice? Yes!
Simultaneous recital of two texts, abstention from inhaling – you name it, he wants it. And Donatienne Michel-Dansac does it...

And on top of it all this sadistic composer wants his singer to enjoy gasping for air. But the Récitations are not just physically demanding; they also require immense musical intelligence of the singer: "Rather than creating melodies simply by combining higher and lower notes I use syllables and phonemes, the components of our language." (Aperghis) In these pieces Aperghis has assembled countless numbers of these components, and he wants them to sound – as simple as possible, why of course! And in spite of all these nearly unfulfillable demands (or because of them?) Donatienne Michel-Dansac does enjoy herself. "It’s an adventure, and a challenge, to perform the 14 Récitations – for the audience, too."

Recommendation
Patrick Pulsinger assembles a quartet to embark on a musical reflection on Morton Feldman at the WIEN MODERN festival. A perfect col legno production! 
The exceptional violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja not only impresses audiences and critics – she also inspires eminent composers like Kühr, Resch & Zykan. 
A "Best-Of" the extraordinary late night concerts with Marino Formenti, recorded at WIEN MODERN 2011!
