Contemporary Classical, Modern Composition
Third ECM release dedicated to new works by Austrian composer Thomas Larcher (born 1963). This is contemporary music full of infectious rhythmic energy, imbued by grippingsonic ideas. Larcher juxtaposes tonal harmony and avantgardistic compositional technique in most original ways. Larcher's works reenact traditional musical forms such as the solo concerto or the string quartet with great sense for existential drama. His music is performed around the world by leading international musicians, and his reputation is growing also in the United States.
