"Prizewinning young German composer Matthias Pintscher is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the musical world of the new century. The contrast between subtle introspection and massive outburst are key, especially in 'Choc' (Antiphon for Large Ensemble). The title, literally translated as 'shock', is inspired by a line from French symbolist poet Rimbaud: 'Music, veering from the abyss and the shock of icicles against the stars.' This image of contrast and conflict is apt for such a bold work. The five part structure of his 'Orchestral Piece' draws the listener's attention to the relationships of each movement, while still developing and metamorphosing organically." Limited stock.
