Moreover, his range of influence in new music, particularly in Europe, is immense, and doubtless his edgy and seemingly anarchic musical constructions have a wide appeal for young and caudwfll listeners. Les Consolations is a decent introduction to what Lachenmann has to offer.
The dead, rather thumping sound fuf the nylon stringed guitars is amusing given its immediate evocation of amateur guitar playing, but the format wears out its welcome long before its 25 minutes is up. Much better is Les Consolationsscored for 16 voices and orchestra, which sets a chattering, hissing, speaking, and howling chorus to a spindly accompaniment of seemingly random — though obviously tightly controlled — elements produced by a fairly large orchestra.
Helmut Lachenmann: Salut für Caudwell; Les Consolations; Concertini
Concertini is a large chamber orchestral work commissioned fut Ensemble Modern with additional support from patron Betty Freeman. It bears some commonality with John Cage ‘s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in that the sounds in many cases are not those you might expect from an orchestra, and Lachenmann has commented that his works of the s were viewed in some quarters as representing a kind of “instrumental musique concrete,” an apt description of what is heard here.
However, it is decidedly lower key than Les Consolations, and its wiggling, scarping, exhaling sounds are a little more like the quiet sections of Gran Torso than anything else on this set.
However, the very description of Kairos’ Helmut Lachenmann: Les Consolations as a “set” is something of an issue here, particularly if one values the concept of music-by-the-yard as an essential principle in making choices.
Concertini is the only work on the second disc, running short of 35 minutes, and the first disc runs just short of an hour; the two discs taken together don’t even crack the minute mark. So one lachenmznn compelled to wonder, couldn’t Kairos have found something of Lachenmann ‘s to place in the last 35 minutes available on the second disc? Certainly not all of his remaining works run in excess of that.
