5.0 out of 5 stars Great modern piece. April 28, 2004
This one of most interesting pieces from the argentinian composer Mauricio Kagel, and one of the greatest versions.
This piece uses non-european instruments and voices (most of them sung by the instrumentists on stage, apart from indian's voices on tape); but in the way of european avantgarde music from the '60s. The result is impresionant, but it could be confused with humour if it's not listened with care and heart. Voices have some links with Stockhausen's Stimmung, but Kagel's work results more complete and perfect, I think.
Ensemble Modern players, conducted by Kagel, give them best on this live recording from Bonn (released too on Aulos label), with a great sense on their playing and with a bit of "humour" on their interpretation; a little bit more than the other great version played for Deutsche Grammophon by Siegfried Palm, Caskel... conducted by Kagel, and now out of stock like this. DG version is longer and very different. For a great understanding of this work you should have both, if you can, because labels use to take out of market this important vanguard recordings.
Only for music lovers with a very open mind about music.
