"With his early compositions of the 1970s, Wolfgang Rihm opened up new perspectives for musical development by advocating a musical aesthetic that offered liberation from the constraints of the prevailing avant-garde ideology of the time. This disc from the RIASKammerchor led by Hans-Christoph Rademann includes his early Fragmenta Passionis (written when Rihm was only 16), the Sieben Passions-texte and the major half-hour-long work Astralis of 2001. These three works are linked above all by their expressive and diverse treatment of the possibilities of the human voice and at the same time by their reflection on traditional forms and genres of musical history."
