Notes and Editorial Reviews

In January of 1989, towards the end of his studies in Hanover, Luxembourg composer Georges Lentz (b. 1965) discovered in a scientific magazine an article attempting to describe the indescribable: the gigantic dimensions of the universe. The composer remembered the traumatic effect that article produced on him, recalling that he almost succumbed to a feeling of fear Pascal decribed as 'infinite space'. This fear ended however, with the composition a cycle titled "Caeli enarrant ... " or "The heavens declare ..." inspired by Psalm 19. This composition allowed Lentz to gradually assume a feeling of utter insignificance in the universe, "Caeli enarrant ... " became the basis of his entire musical production. In Read more terms of mood and technique, the music of Georges Lentz expresses the "spectral" and is rooted in our era of textures, statistics and the tradition of Xenakis and Messiaen with sonic "Messiaenesque" chorales and even chords reminiscent of the expressions musical romanticism. This album includes the CD premiere of "Monh" for viola and orchestra, with soloist Tabea Zimmermann. - Timpani (Translated from French) Read less
