  • Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001)

WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING The music has ‘active energy’ … this music is more concerned with atmosphere than character; with auras rather than individuals. The performance is dazzling, and I come firmly into the ‘bowled over’ rather than ‘baffled’ category. Gramophone Almost defying description, this performance features Xenakis at his most probing, radical and intellectual. The surprise is how he always infuses the music with such emotional power. I am always moved in a different way when I experience this piece. Stereophile (Records to Die For 1993)
