Wolfgang Rihm - Requiem Strophen - a suggested recording. First a shortish item for orchestra: Gruss-Moment 2 (duration ten minutes)
and then a longer item for singers, chorus and orchestra: Requiem Strophen (duration about an hour and twenty minutes)

[I'll leave it to others to provide further information if known or required.]

Right - I like Rihm....something of an acquired taste, but have stuck at it !
What does anyone else think of him/this work ?

Thank you Henrietta Pedal for these links.
And in answer of mr. Clive's question: after getting use to Rihm's music I became a great fan of his works.
He writes apparently as easy orchestral as works for chamber music. His 13 string quartets are intelligent works. His symphonies, three numbered and 3 'Vers une Fleuve' (also symphonies) are worth listening.
He wrote a series of Verwandlungen (6. I believe) for orch and couple of concertant works.

In a number of interviews he shows that he knows what he's doing and can tell how and why.
Without a doubt one of todays toppers in Germany.

Ah..Verwandlungen in rather short supply on YT (just 3 & 6, I believe ?). Seem to be a decent number of concerti on his worklist, though.

I wish I could say something more positive abouit Rihm, but I don't know what the fuss is about. I just don't enjoy his music.
After several attempts to do so, I just gave up. I kept wondering why am I listening to this?
There is so much great accessible music to hear, I may not live live enough to get some composers who are a hard listen...and there are others.
Maybe it's akin to an abstract painting that causes me to wonder if the artist is just toying mentally with everyone,ala John Cage?

I tend to agree with you, Jolly Roger.
