Munich composer Max Beckschäfer invites us on a fantastic roller coaster ride filled with moving moments on his new GENUIN release, where each piece is a world premiere recording. Beckschäfer presents settings of new and old poetry from the Middle Ages to the post-modern era, bridging the gap over several centuries. Sometimes we feel like we are listening to a medieval troubador, sometimes we hear the disconcerting sound clusters of our time. A pupil of Killmayer, Beckschäfer collaborated with brilliant countertenor Franz Vitzthum, the Ensemble Stimmwerck, and the Ensemble Il Capriccio for this production, artists who truly make the dazzling colors of his music shine – inspiringly different!
