GRUPPEN for 3 Orchestras reply

I read everything I could find on GRUPPEN, took the stereo tracks and converted them to 3 tracks, and posted my findings to my KS blog. Hope you enjoy

Very minor point, but you say you know of no other electric guitar solos in the "classical" literature. There is an extremely important one also in Henze's Versuch über Schweine.

Listening to it now on Youtube - thanks Jerry! I have to admit I never really got into Henze much. American provincialism and all that. ;)

Sounds a bit Kurt Weill-ish so far...not bad, interesting.

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
