BOEHMER, KONRAD: Position, Il Combattimento, Ourobouros
Quantity in Basket:none
Three compositions, the first and to my ears the most important dating back to 1960-61 - for Orchestra and tape (conducted here by Bruno Maderna in 1963 for WDR in Germany). Pure '60s, complex and eventful. Impressive. The second piece is from 1989, again for orchestra with violin and cello soloists; more conventional, more diffuse. The third a contemporary piano piece; difficult, good but familiar. It's the first piece that is an important recovery from a crucial period.
