Live recording of "Farben der Frühe" (for seven pianos), from 2007. Stereo/5.1 multichannel hybrid CD/SACD release that can be played on any CD player. "Spahlinger is not exactly known as a fast composer, but even by his standards the eight years it took to write this piece represent an extraordinarily long time. The premiere of the piece commissioned by the SDR in 1997 was delayed five times before it finally took place in November 2005. In the end, Spahlinger did indeed reveal something new between the rubble of tonal organization and the new construction of an architecture of sound and noise, something that had never previously been heard in this form. By doing so, he probably created a caesura not only within his own creative work but in the production of music today as a whole. The present multichannel surround recording from March 20, 2007, with the pianists of the premiere is a pioneering act of musica viva in Munich."
