Even though I have periods where I'm less interested in Stockhausen (as with every composer), I can confirm that it is impossible to wear out Gruppen (same with his other best masterpieces)  8)

More than any other Stockhausen piece, I constantly discover new things in it that freak me out (both as a listener and from the score itself). I love Gruppen so much  :-*
