Well, it is hard for me to enjoy much of my Rihm piano collection after what Siegfried Mauser did and was told by the judge at his trial.

DAS GRAPSCHER!!!???!!!?!?!?!?!!

 :o ??? :o
 ??? :o ???
 :o ??? :o
Yikes! Didn't know about that!

I guess you'll have to fall back on...



jUDGE: "You may think you're as sexually attractive as James Bond, but you overrate yourself,... and aren't that hawt" (paraphrased)



His colleague says that the lady doth protest too much and took revenge because SM passed her up for a promotion? kitty kitty



The New World Order: If you have a penis in a position of power, WATCH OUT!!



Probably just as EZ to put k-porn on his computy...



As for me, Mauser has all of a sudden become more interesting to me... will have to dif out CDs and see if I can hear any perversions under the fingernails...

You know who the lady in question was?

No, actually, let me re-phrase that: You know the lady in question. At least you have a few records by her, I'd say. Decidedly a better musician than Mauser, for what it's worth.

OUCH!! 47mins.

And I see the two early SQs are the featured attraction, with one new SQ and one new String Quintet, All pieces shortish. Mmmm... I'm losing a little bit of girth over those details...

But still, nice to see

47 mins or not, it's a disc with Rihm SQs!

I think it has been 6 (!) years since my previous listening of the full set of Rihm SQs in chronological order (I think I posted about it at the time) and I have been itching to do it again. There's just something irresistible about those works. The difference is that nowadays I would include the two Wergo CDs for a total of 6 discs of Rihm SQ bliss :).

It was either 6 or 7 that I really liked, and either 6 or 7 that I found too long...

And all kinds of things begin to happen around 8-12...

I hear ya, though,... Rihm has a maddening effect like that, makes you want to binge...

Still, at 47mins., they could've given us sooomething... (if I were more inclined, I'm sure I would be right there with ya as to not caring about the timing)


Will we get a monstrous Masterpiece out of Rihm shortly?? Something new and unheard of??

What is Uber die Linie?  There seem to be a lot of pieces with the same title. What's he about, what's he trying to do?

So far I find it above recording so sprawling it's unpleasant, I'm trying to decide whether to put it to one side, or whether there are ideas in there worth pursuing. Part of the problem may be the spotify sound.

I got interested in it because one of my heros, Arne Deforce, played it -- alas no recording by him.

It's a cycle. There is plenty about Rihm's use of cycles as a compositional approach in Knockaert's book. Specifically, Über die Linie is mentioned in a chapter devoted to how strong an influence the fine arts have on the composer, but not a lot beyond quoting the brief notes to Über die Linie VIII, here.

Thanks



Klanschreibung I-III (...1987)

These three pieces equal about 90mins. of the best effects heavy Rihm. I don't know of any other piece that does what these do. And I think most everyone agrees, it's just a bygone conclusion at this point. Great stuff, black as night.



What is this?

(Very much enjoying the 7th quartet. Such a shame that Snyprr was eradicated.)
