FRANCO DONATONI: Chamber Works
“We all like music that is rigorous and uncompromising”, says Matthias Engler. Donatoni relentlessly strings together diverse fields of sound, working on them like a sculptor. Sometimes there are caesuras and then suddenly we hear something completely. However, contained in every piece is a point of reference, to which everything else can be traced back.
The four solo pieces and three chamber musical pieces on this CD show exactly this intransigence and connections exemplarily.
