Performed by Minguet Quartett: Ulrich Isfort, 1st violin; Annette Reisinger, 2nd violin; Firmian Lermer, viola; Matthias Diener, violoncello; Mojca Erdmann, soprano; Christoph Bantzer & Peter Ruzicka, speakers. "Literary fixed stars spur Peter Ruzicka to continue on to make new musical observations. He reflects in his quartets the verbal scepticism of Celan, Hofmannsthal and Hölderlin, which allows the composer to examine his own thinking and feelings. He remains acute, too, and is therefore able to risk a glimpse into the depths of the human spirit. Heavy emotional outbursts are tempered by an ethos of reasoning, of reflection, and a certain urbanity if one will. In his later works, Ruzicka allows 'the word' to rest on a firm foundation, one no longer mute, but explicit -- what emerges are sensitive speech and music pregnant with meaning." Stereo/multichannel hybrid SACDs that can be played on any CD player.
