5.0 out of 5 stars Outsider with interestingly gentle situations October 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Walter Zimmermann is a good example of an "outsider" like composer one not following the pack even within the corridors of established European and German music.

He found Feldman and Cage as a breath of fresher air,than Stockhausen or Lachenmann giving a more conceptual fluency to what he does, while acknowledging the "ends" of things, of theatre and music, of drama,the aesthetic and the role of the avant-garde. Instead to refurbish his music he finds relatively unusual situations,scouring diverse materials,texts,"sieves" and sources to build a context around in which a piece of music is composed. This agenda doesn't always guarantee success and when it doesn't work you know. The ear should be trusted/consulted always putting what is heard above the integrity of the concept, very post-modern I suppose.

"Wandering in the desert"(Wuestenwanderung) (1986) is a gentle like piano solo, at least it begins this way, unassuming,like gentle wind chimes, you can listen all day,and all over the piano's registers are summoned but not commanded so much as gingerly requested,we cross different places on the piano crossing registers, and timbres, sometimes landing a focus on a repeated tone like a metaphor for travel. But as you listen this music works more for degrees of density, you seem to hear when more tones are introduced given the relative threadbare writing.You don't know if it is tonal, certainly not here but there is much euphoniousness timbres heard, tones blended that try to blend. The pianist must decide how much is blended or you could have a rather bleak situation. The piece the sheet music looks like a pointillistic affair until you hear it.
