Air. Has this ever been commercially recorded?

An old radio recording of Air was released on one of the volumes of BMG's Musik in Deutschland series.

Indeed, it is the recording of the premiere:

This live Allegro Sostenuto from Ensemble Recherche seems to me to be more successful than the recording - more tension.


And I’ll just mention that I’ve been really enjoying Double (Grido II), in fact I like it more than Grido I! Maybe Lachenmann’s most accessible modernist piece.

My single biggest problem with these pieces is that Bernd Alois Zimmermann did all of this far better--and far more disturbingly--in the 1960s.

I'm not used to Lachenmann-as-pale-imitation-of-his-predecessors.


As far as I can see the experimentation with tonality happened as early as 2000, before he had released Grido and Schreiben in fact, with the Sakura variations.


I think the idea is that the listener will find himself reassessing his relation to mainstream music.

Concertini is interesting in this respect.
