Ninety Years reply

Today Stockhausen would have been 90 years old. I am reminded in part because, six years ago, the premiere of MITTWOCH aus LICHT in Birmingham was on his 84th birthday, which also fell on a Wednesday that year.

Yes, and it is, I think, a sad reminder of how early Stockhausen left us. 90 years is no longer so extraordinarily old, and yet we commemorated the tenth anniversary of his passing last year.

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! Thomas Ulrich
