LP version. Ernstalbrecht Stiebler is the first German composer that based his compositions on minimal techniques. This record is the first part of an edition of his works on the M=minimal label. Stiebler, whose first reductionist work Extension I was first performed in 1963, clearly showed an opposite position to the serial composers of that time. As a composer, Stiebler is unfortunately still very unknown, but he has a great reputation as a producer for the German radio. Some of the recordings were released on the prestigious hat ART label. Among other things, he supervised recordings by Morton Feldman, John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Giacinto Scelsi, Earle Brown and Christian Wolff. The work "Sequenz II" for cello and tape from 1984, is available as a new recording with cellist Agnieszka Dziubak. The organ work "Mitteltöne" (1997) was performed by the 77 year-old Stiebler himself and is the first available recording. The recordings were produced by Borngräber & Strüver. "Trio 89" is a key work that was released in 1996 on hat ART and is now finally available again. The recording licensed for this record was produced by German radio RBB in 1994 and was performed by Frances-Marie Uitti (cello), Robyn Schulkowsky (percussion) and Marianne Schroeder (piano). All three of them are well-known for their excellent performances of new music.
