Helmut Lachenmann 85

Helmut Lachenmann’s composing and aesthetic reflection has influenced New Music more than almost any other composer of his generation. For a long time opinions were divided with regard to the often noise-like musical lines, and for decades WERGO has published recordings of his compositions and has accompanied his development from the 1960s until today. Only recently the CD “Other Stories” was released by the Trio Accanto, which contains, among others, his latest irritatingly cheerful, tonally popular pieces – including a vocal interlude by the composer. On November 27, 2020, Lachenmann celebrates his 85th birthday – congratulations!
