Welcome to WERGO – New Music for more than 50 Years

Igor Stravinsky: Petrushka
The young Stravinsky became acquainted with large part of the Western music repertoire through piano arrangements. That might have been one reason for his later compositional practice to arrange major works for piano duet or for two pianos as well.
With the new CD “Petrushka”, the Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo has achieved its intention to present a complete collection of Igor Stravinsky’s published piano arrangements.

Edition Musikfabrik: Fächer
To unfold a seemingly simple form into an intricate structure: The fan epitomizes the transformation from simple to complex. Transitions from clearly defined forms to figures of great heterogeneity are fundamentally inscribed into the two compositions on this CD

Enjott Schneider: Magic of Irreality
Visions and illusions, dreams and hallucinations were the inspiration for Enjott Schneider’s surreal sound images: the current CD recording collects two double concertos by the Munich composer, both of which use unconventional combinations of solo instruments to make poetic contradictions audible.

Graciela Paraskevaídis: Libres en el sonido
Graciela Paraskevaídis, an exceptional composer from Latin America, is a real discovery. She developed her own musical language which she taught in Europe and combined with traditional idioms of her home country to respond to concrete, current social issues. For many years, the Argentine-Uruguayan composer maintained close ties of artistic friendship with the Ensemble Aventure which presents seven of her works, including four first recordings, on this CD.

Michael Blake: The Philosophy of Composition
Michael Blake is South African composition’s most important link to the American and British experimental traditions of the second half of the twentieth century. As regards the former, Blake’s affinity with composers like Charles Ives and John Cage precedes his mature engagements with these composers through an embrace of certain qualities of openness relating to musical structure and material that can be heard throughout the works recorded on this CD.

Trio Accanto: Songs and Poems
“Songs and Poems” points in a certain direction. It reflects an underlying longing in these instrumental pieces for language, voice, and song, for the authenticity of singing, the simplicity of song, and the hidden meanings of poetry. Perhaps “Songs and Poems” is a song collection that only dreams of songs, just as the Trio Accanto – with its unusual instrumentation of saxophone, percussion, and piano – is a jazz trio that does not play jazz.

Lisa Streich: Pietà
It is whipping and humming, while the orchestra strides like lost in reverie. The enigmatic beginning of Lisa Streich’s portrait CD in the series EDITION ZEITGENÖSSISCHE MUSIK lays the cornerstone for a sound journey, oscillating between this world and the hereafter. To create a wide musical spectrum, the swede composer uses a variety of instrumentation.
