XENAKIS: Music for Strings

Quantity in Basket:none

Syrmos, Aroura, Voile, Threraps, Analogique A+B and Ittidra. Music for between 1 and 20 strings, but mostly in the teens, composed between 1959 and 1996. The classics here are Analogique (1959) for 9 strings ands tape, and Ittidra (1996) for sextet (big Messiaienesque chords) but, overall, it's an excellent and representative collection. Strings respond especially well to Xenakis' clouds and swarms approach to sonic structuration.
