This is a post I published long before I joined this forum but I've since updated it to include info about the new MIXTUR 2003 CD so it seems appropriate to post now. It should be handy for people who picked up this recent disc and want to know where the breaks occur. It's a fantastic-sounding disc, the ring-modulation is much richer than in any previous recording and the instruments are all nicely close-miked. I only wish that Kathinka had included a non-RM'ed mix as well...
I feel that it could be useful to have a discussion-forum on the music of Stockhausen. There are so many people from all over the world, young and old, learned and eager to get into contact with this musical world: musicologists, composers, musicians, music lovers; people who plan concerts - who write books or have to give lectures and so on. So there should be much stuff, many ideas that we can share. And when we have open questions, there may be people who studied just that and could give a hint or a stimulus.
A problem might be the English language, but i feel that is the only possibility that many people who are interested can participate. And we can exercise tolerance to mistakes!
