Stockhausen Final 1

In Klang, the final unfinished incantatory cycle Stockhausen, its completion interrupted by the composer’s disappearance, each work corresponds to one of the 24 hours of the day.

The last work by Stockhausen meets a masterpiece by Helmut Lachenmann, Mouvement (-vor der Erstarrung). A work that pushes the visionary Hector Berlioz' intuition to its ultimate consequences, "Every sounding object employed by the composer is a musical instrument."
