Since his untimely death last year, several new pieces by Karlheinz Stockhausen have been premiered posthumously. Yesterday night, the newest of these premieres was given in the Klaus-von-Bismarck-Saal at the WDR in Cologne. The composition is part of the larger cycle KLANG which was to contain 24 pieces for each hour of the day. “Balance” is the piece for the seventh hour of the day.
KLANG – 7. STUNDE: BALANCE (2007) für Bassklarinette, Englischhorn, Flöte (World Premiere)
This excerpt features the first section of the 30 minute piece.
