Iannis Xenakis - Palimpsest · Epei · Dikhthas · Akanthos (1990)
Classical | EAC (APE, CUE & NO CUE) | 176 MB

Over thirty years after the scandal created by the première of his first orchestral work, Metastaseis, at Donaueschingen in 1955, Xenakis's music still poses for the listener a disconcerting dichotomy: the ingredients of the music appear to consist of a plethora of scientific and higher mathematical expressions, a web of calculations and diagrams, and yet the sonic result is raw and dramatic, intensely passionate and subjective.
