Quote from: Al Moritz on October 23, 2007, 08:14:34 AMThanks for posting this, Cato.Funny, after having first heard "classics" like Gruppen and Carré, it was exactly the opera Montag aus Licht that convinced me back in 2000 that Stockhausen was not just one of the "typical" great 20th century composers, but a composer of truly exceptional status. If anything, my admiration for this opera has grown over time (as has the one for the just mentioned old "classics")Even if you would have held a pistol against my head, I could never have made a correlation with Orff. And of course, the critic's prediction about the C major has not panned out. I do, however, appreciate that the critic has found some positive things to say about the music.
Quote from: Cato on December 10, 2007, 08:35:03 AMProbably Stockhausen will present a case where no musicologist could ever claim to know how to complete one of his works.
Quote from: Cato on December 10, 2007, 08:35:03 AMHow many unfinished works are lying around? Probably Stockhausen will present a case where no musicologist could ever claim to know how to complete one of his works.

Quote from: Cato on December 10, 2007, 09:14:23 AMCan you be more specific? What shocks a Dutchman these days? $:)
Quote from: Harry on December 10, 2007, 09:17:25 AMI did not finish it, it finished me.I was so in shock, that I forgot what piece it was.Electronics, and the torture of different String instruments....
Quote from: Cato on December 11, 2007, 03:48:05 AMThe current opinion, that Stockhausen went awry with an out-of-control solipsism back in the 1970's and that 10 minutes of LICHT is the only evidence you would need at a commitment trial to prove it, may prove to be enduring.
Quote from: Al Moritz on December 11, 2007, 10:37:41 AMThis opinion may prove to be enduring as long as people keep on not knowing his stunning late music. An opinion based on lack of knowledge.Too bad that the Helikopter-Streichquartett, one of his few "duds" (or at least, only accessible to people with a wavelength for it, which does not quite include me) is one of the few musics of late Stockhausen that are available outside Stockhausen-Verlag.
