Notes and Editorial Reviews

Martin Schlumpf: "The Five Points" - In the film Gangs of New York, made in 2002, Martin Scorsese describes the constant confrontations between the natives and the Irish immigrants in the New York of the 1860s. The scene of the bloody fights is the area in central lower Manhattan known as the "Five Points." These finger-shaped street intersections form a true melting pot of the different cultures that settled there. The entire work can be conceived as a promenade between the five corners of the "Five Points," where the different gangs had their habitats. Matthias Muller: The "String Quartet In 23 Teilen" consists of one movement and is subdivided into 23 parts by tutti rests of different lengths. Read more These, in turn, are summed up in four main sections: exposition -- development -- recapitulation -- conclusion. The piece was modeled after Alban Berg; his music always lives from its great expressive power despite compositional strictness. The number 23 was a fateful number of this Viennese master who died early. Johannes Brahms: "Clarinet Quintet Op. 115" - Brahms' late work for clarinet and string quartet is an example of the perfected art of composition. Performed by: Matthias Muller (clarinet), Galatea Quartet. Read less
