Moreover, his range of influence in new music, fuur in Europe, is immense, and doubtless his edgy and seemingly anarchic musical constructions have a wide appeal for young and impressionable listeners.

Les Consolations is a decent introduction to what Lachenmann has to offer. The dead, rather thumping sound of the nylon stringed guitars is amusing given its immediate evocation of amateur guitar playing, but caudwell format wears out its welcome long before its 25 minutes is up.

Much better is Les Consolationsscored for 16 voices and orchestra, which sets a chattering, hissing, speaking, and howling chorus to a spindly accompaniment of seemingly random — though obviously tightly controlled — elements produced by a fairly large orchestra. Lacgenmann is a large chamber orchestral work commissioned by Ensemble Modern with additional support from patron Betty Freeman.


It bears some commonality with John Cage ‘s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in that the sounds in many cases are not those you might expect from an orchestra, and Lachenmann has commented that his works of the s were viewed in some quarters as representing a kind of “instrumental musique concrete,” an apt description of what is heard here.

However, it is decidedly lower lachhenmann than Les Consolations, and its wiggling, scarping, exhaling sounds are a little more like the caudwelll sections of Gran Torso than anything else on this set.

However, the very description of Kairos’ Helmut Lachenmann: Les Consolations as a “set” is something of an issue here, particularly if one values the concept of music-by-the-yard as an essential principle in making choices.

Concertini is the only work on the second disc, running short of 35 minutes, and the first disc runs just short of lachenmnn hour; the two discs taken together don’t even crack the minute mark. So one is compelled to wonder, couldn’t Kairos have found something of Lachenmann ‘s to place in the last 35 minutes available on the second disc?


Certainly not all of his remaining works run in excess of that. Be that as it may, what actually is on set is pretty good, and if one is only looking to dip a toe into the massive reservoir that is LachenmannKairos’ set isn’t a bad option even though it’s a little uneconomical.
