Nice- different KS

"this is a nice CD on Stockhausen's(KS) piano music, Ms.Klein even includes here quite interestingly items in his galaxy-ian ouevre you would never usually encounter, like a reading of an early Sixties process work "Plus-Minus", here you need to make your own score to perform from, from Stockhausen's(KS) graphic score with instructions, you can even utilize electronics to render the "other" timbres" necessary or herein simply a different pitch configuration(s). The piece is realizable for any instrument(s). Also Ms. Klein develops a solo from the Zodiac pieces here "Tiekreis"(1975-1977) she likes tremoli in her freedom, how she plays, sometimes for my taste she is a bit too timid, tepid, more feline than canine, which I beleive (KS) requires most of the time, you need to "bite" and "crush" "Bark-at" & "devour" the timbres with your in this instance piano hands, as in the indeterminate "Piano Piece 11", given here in two versions. This is a large page of fragments where the pianist works their way through these fragements but again with some intervention from the composer, where you cannot go backwards, or repeat a line. She does quite well with "Piano Piece 5"here more spatially beautifully deployed events-moments, more straight, less encumbered with concept, more with music,the piece isolates regions of the piano timbre, here interested in "punkte" "points", again I could have done with a bit more violence. Without it the more "quasi-spiritual" works of Karlheinz works in congruence with Ms. Klein's performing abilities, constitution, one page from the "Word" Music, quasi-inprovisational "Aus den Sieben Tagen"(1968), "From the Seven Last Days", here you can deposit an image in your playing, and she does with a major Seventh in the basso regions to kick things off.What you do here is read a poem-like instruction, like "follow another's sound as far as you can" such abstraktion(s) is open enough to make music.But was intended for group therapy music making, with his group Joahnnes Fritsch, Rolf Gelhaard, Aloys Kontarsky and KS himself etc; Again it is fascinating to fine this approach to these "materials" you seldom encounter in STockhausen."
