Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Listening to the production I had a strong feeling that these three pieces form a kind of unity after all, that they do develop something like a single thought -- over a period of over 30 years. One can never know that when one writes the individual work. Now I see something of my identity in the trios." Nikolaus Brass (born 1949, Lindau, Germany) initially studied medicine and took private composition lessons with Peter Kiesewetter, before later studying with Frank Michael Beyer and Helmut Lachenmann. Between 1978 and 1986 he regularly attended the Darmstadt Summer Courses, where he also met with Morton Feldman. His music has become standard at every important new music festival, such as the Donaueschingen Festival, musica viva Read more in Munich, Ultraschall Berlin, ECLAT Stuttgart, Klangspuren Schwaz, and Witten Days for New Chamber Music. Brass has turned more toward staged projects in the 2010s (the chamber music theater work Sommertag, based on Norwegian author and dramatist Jon Fosse's work of the same name of, was premiered in 2014 at the Munich Biennale). Brass has received numerous awards, including the Music Prize of the State Capital Munich in 2009. Since 2014 he has been a member of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts. This disc presents TrioCoriolis's performance of three of his works. Read less
