Lux Aeterna. Three Fantasies after Hölderlin.

Cappella Amsterdam, MusikFabrik, Daniel Reuss
1 CD

Excerpt:II. Wenn aus der Ferne

Both Ligeti and Heppener belong to the generation born in the 1920s which formed the basis for the post-war avant-garde. Lux Aeterna, used by Stanley Kubrick in his film 2001: A Space Odyssey, marked the installation of a new musical language. The later Sonata for solo viola simultaneously evokes the polyphony of the fourteenth century and certain varieties of ethnic music. Im Gestein, a cycle of lieder to poems by Paul Celan which won Heppener the Matthijs Vermeulen Prize in 1993.
This title was released for the first time in 2008.
