Notes and Editorial Reviews

Michael Denhoff was born in Westphalia. He studied cello under Siegfried Palm and composition under Jurg Baur and Hans Werner Henze. During 1984/85 he taught composition at the University in Mainz. At present he is a freelance composer and cellist and lives in Bonn. About this piece he writes: "My Mallarme cycle is the musical form of reading: it is the attempt to creatively explore Un Coup de Des with the means available to me, in the knowledge that this attempt cannot be the final one for me, but must remain only the intermediate stage of a personal approach. Just as Mallarme's poem may be read as an apologia of failure - as a hypothetical experiment in thought, so my music, responding to Mallarme, in its sound texture and written fixing, Read more also remains open in both directions with the proviso of a perhaps. The 12 quartets for varying instruments are like 12 steps towards Mallarme's poem. Thus chosen parts of the word score Un Coup de Des become the starting point for musical reflections." 5709499490006 579499490000 Danacord DACOCD 490 VARIOUS Organ Music from the 17th to 19th Centuries "Hans Helmut Tillmanns, organ Read less
