Chin, Unsuk – “Akrostichon-Wortspiel” – [Deutsche Grammophon]

uc

Korean composer Unsuk Chin (b. 1961) studied under Gyorgy Ligeti and she takes his influence somewhere very special. This CD features performances by Ensemble Contemperain, founded by Pierre Boulez in 1976. The music is colorful and textural. Tracks 1-7 track together as one work. Many silences, subtleties. Tracks 8, 9, & 10 are more recent, longer compositions. Tension, anxiety, and dread make their presences felt.
