Orchestral Works Vol. 1
Featured works: "The Structures of Echo -- Lindauer Beweinung", (Music for 32 Voices and Orchestra, 2002). "Void II" (music for Piano, Saxophone, Percussion and Orchestra, 2001). "It is rare to find composers who can use sounds to tell stories of absolute void and who manage, conversely, in passages of virtual silence to give some sense of the richness of overriding entities. Nikolaus Brass, born in Lindau on Lake Constance in 1949, is one such artist -- a quiet, reflective, and, in the profound sense of the word, friendly man. Because he has never been at the center of the scenes that set the tone, he has, unforgiveably, been scarcely noticed by the very people to whom he has essential things to offer. His music does not seek to shine artistically but is rather the result of a search for the essential core of things that is as truthful as it is intensely probing."
