Notes and Editorial Reviews

Tres Momentos describes a section of the infinite spiral, in which disorder and structure, the sacred and the profane, life and death are mutually dependent. Drone sounds connect three composed moments for string orchestra. The composition’s lyrical tones contrast with multi-layered noise elements, which ultimately dissolve into a waltz. With this release, Sven Helbig departs from his previously preferred rigorous tonal harmonies, and the electronic components become more prominent. With the cover artwork, Sven Helbig quotes the 3,000-year-old Chinese oracle of I Ching. The trigram stands for the universal, the eternal and for creative power. Imagine a blend of classical music, experimental electronica, and a certain catchiness found in pop Read more – Sven Helbig definitely has an ear for captivating melodies. Together, with his well-trained classical composing technique and a sure hand for electronic sound creation, he builds touching musical landscapes. Through the last year, his concerts inspired audiences at the Barbican Center London, Manchester Camerata, Reina Sofia Madrid, Volksbühne Berlin, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg as well as the Enescu Festival Bucharest or Dresden Music Festival. Now, Sven Helbig is on tour with his Forrklang Quartet presenting new compositions and chamber music versions of his well-known pieces. Read less
