Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dasselbe ist nicht dasselbe. This casual-sounding title of one of Nicolaus A. Huber's compositions could be the motto for all his work - and it consistently displays undreamed-of explosive force. At first, much seems familiar, only to shift suddenly to a completely unexpected direction. As a result, not only are established musical parameters nullified but traditional performance situations and all accompanying circumstances as well. From radical social criticism to the scientific theories of quantum physics - everything can play a role in his works and continually demand entirely new forms of presentation and reception. Moreover, for Huber, the artist is free. He may adhere to guidelines and formulas, but he is also free to disregard them Read more at any moment. Thus, complete surprise is possible at all times, and that is what makes Huber's music always fresh and exciting. Read less
