Notes and Editorial Reviews

Completed in 1983, Das atmende Klarsein, which juxtaposes chaste choral settings of Rilke’s Duino Elegies with solos for a bass flute constantly overlaid with electronically transformations and echoes, is one of the major works of Nono’s final period, pure and uncompromisingly poetic. It’s coupled here with two far earlier a cappella pieces – the familiar Coro di Didone from 1958, settings of Ungaretti that underpin tight-packed choral writing with unpitched percussion, and Da un diario italiano, a densely woven fragment written in 1963 for 72-part choir and intended as the start of a music-theatre piece, but which went unperformed until 2000.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5)
