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.
