Karlheinz Stockhausen
Adventures In Sound

Karlheinz Stockhausen is an artist that every music lover should give a go at least once in their life. The German composer’s theories about everything from form to notation to sound itself revolutionised art music in post-war Europe. In one way or another his work has influenced pretty much genre to come after him. Worth a listen, then, and this new compilation Adventures In Sound provides a good way into the composer's ouevre.

Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez
New Directions In Music

Two of the big daddies of contemporary music share a CD here, with a selection of pieces pushing forwards towards New Directions In Music. Karlheinz Stockhausen presents two piano pieces (the first, Etude Concrete, is chopped up and rearranged, and is an early example of musique concrète) and his Zeitmasse. Pierre Boulez brings his woodwind-and-vocal-heavy Le Marteau Sans Maître. Seminal pieces of musical history, sure, but also a hell of a listen today.
