Format: Audio CD
The recent release of Giya Kancheli's music on the ECM New Series label (In l'istesso tempo), featuring Gidon Kremer, has been keeping me spellbound of late. This is not the kind of music that you would listen to on your way to work, however. It is for after hours, when you have finished with the day's demands and are able to relax quietly with a glass of wine and no outside disturbances. You will turn the lights down low (or even shut them off entirely) when listening to such music, as the entire experience is meant for the sense of hearing.

Kancheli's music is idiosyncratic. If I had to compare him to any other modern-day composer it might be Arvo Pärt in that both composers possess a minimalist approach. But they differ beyond this initial resemblance. Pärt's music possesses a very spiritual outlook on life, whereas Kancheli's is a more darkly existentialist view. In trying to come to terms with Kancheli's style and approach, Wolfgang Rathert's album notes are most enlightening.

Rathert finds the essence of the so-called new music which characterized the Second Viennese School was less an emancipation of dissonance and more an absolute claim to subjectivity and expressiveness. He also characterizes the "autonomy of sound" as the primary characteristic of the new music. Though the advent of the First World War brought a hiatus in the development of this new musical language, "it fundamentally changed the idea of what music was."

According to Rathert, "the genesis of new music raised fundamental questions" which every serious composer since that time has been forced to address. So the "end of the new music cannot be proclaimed, though there is no doubt an ongoing productive crisis.

There are not that many Kancheli recordings and any good one is worth the price of admission . This is good.
