Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001) - Choral Music

"I want to get away from myself, as if I had come to this world like an alien. I think the powerful things are without sentiment." - Xenakis

- Opname 1997 -


"Nothing short of phenomenal. Here is one of the 20th century's most important musical voices, and this recording does that voice full justice." - Gramophone

"Achingly beautiful as well as aesthetically satisfying. I can't imagine a better representation of the vocal work both in program and performance. This is an absolute Must Have for everyone." - Fanfare, USA

Thank you for this. I have been exploring Xenakis lately but have never heard any of his choral music before. It looks fascinating.

Geweldig! Ik ken helemaal geen koormuziek van Xenakis. Bedankt!
