Stockhausen's Klavierstück X was originally to have been premiered in 1961 for Radio Bremen. The pianist was to have been David Tudor, who had already established himself in Stockhausen's Klavierstucke as well as the music of of John Cage The 25-Year Retrospective Concert of the Music of John Cage. As Tudor was touring at the time, another American pianist/composer, Frederic Rzewski took the task over. The premiere eventually took place in Palermo, Italy at a composition competition in 1962, while the first German performance took place in Munich, 1963. Several broadcast performances were recorded before Rzewski's official studio recording at the Ariola-Tonstudio in December 1964. Aloys Kontarsy was the next to record the piece - in Switzerland in 1965 Karlheinz Stockhausen: Klavierstucke 1-11, Mikrophonie I & II.

This is a classic recording and one of the great performances of any 20th Century masterwork for piano. The work itself is one which informed Rzewski's own piano compositions in its innovative aspects of technique and dramatic presentation.
