Featured works: "La musique creuse le ciel" music for two pianos and large orchestra (1977/1979) and "Über-Schrift" for two pianos (1992/2003); performed by GrauSchumacher Piano Duo, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin/Peter Rundel. "Music from various phases in the output of Wolfgang Rihm, combined into a diptych by one of the most renowned piano duos of our times. Scene One: flexing the muscles with twenty digits, or how does one smash the glasshouse of serialism without rendering one's fingers bloody? Scene Two: some years later (the scabs have gone, but the scars remain): some clever twitching. Sounds typed in create an ever-denser kaleidoscope of colors and spatial effects. The glass cage -- if it ever existed -- has disappeared. Music creates its own structure, a flexible one too. A dazzling tinsel sphere."
