Format: Audio CD
For those who know Stockhausen from his extremely ambitious, iconoclastic and explorative works from Kontakte and onwards, Tierkreis might immediately come as a surprise, even though the idea, twelve melodies representing the signs of the zodiac, might with hindsight seem to be in character from a biographical point of view. Yet the music is actually clearly a continuation of his style as well; indeed it might be argued that it connects together several of his earlier preoccupations, the formulas of his earlier work and the more improvisational music of the 60s in particular, but the focus on melody is also something present in some earlier works such as MAntra. That is not to say that these pieces are tuneful in any traditional manner, rather the basic material are melodic fragments distilled to its simples cores, and the work as a whole comes across as something akin to a series of vignettes. Fair enough, but even though there are many absorbing, even appealing, episodes here, I really miss the almost megalomaniac ambitions of his earlier works - Stockhausen in introvert, improvisatory small-scale mode just isn't the same, so while the music is rewarding I cannot help but feeling a tinge of disappointment.

The performances are not to blame, though something should be said about what goes on here. We get two discs, each with a different take on the work. The first is Michael Svoboda's reworking of the series, the second contains much improvisatory work from the musicians (under specified conditions). The two realizations are actually rather different though with familiar gestures popping up from time to time, but often in strikingly different aural frameworks.
