KLAVIERSTÜCKE IIV reply

Digging back into Stockhausen's formative years, I wrote a blog post about the first 4 KLAVIERSTÜCKE. I was never a HUGE fan of these, but after writing about them and trying to find ways inside these thorny pieces, I was able to finally enjoy them.

Once again, I appreciate and congratulate you on your description and analyses here. You provide some great insights into the importance of these works both historically and in their own right, as well as making them genuinely exciting territory for someone to explore who might otherwise have been daunted by their initial apparent inapproachability. Well done!

Thanks! Actually one of those people whom you characterize as being daunted by these pieces would be me! But my mission to write about all 100 Stockhausen Opuses (Opi?) makes me confront works I normally wouldn't examine as closely. And fortunately it's been quite rewarding!

Rewarding for us reading it, too!

And I think the plural is 'opera', but that gets kind of confusing!

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
