Even if I’ve developed a taste for avant-garde music over the years, I have to admit Wolfgang Rihm doesn’t come easy with me, especially not when he composes for large orchestral settings, as is the case here. Heavy blasts follow upon ethereal sounds, romantic climaxes alternate with ugly dissonances, and whenever you think you there’s something resembling a theme to be found, it vanishes abruptly. In short, it all seems like disconnected fragments whirling around after an explosion.
And they do so with the volume up to the max! Rihm definitely has a reputation of being a loud composer.
Good thing about it, the music won’t bore you.
