A second helping of Reich Pudding! Gut,ja! Smiley



After that cd of Max von Schillings' String Quartet & Quintet,this album of String Quartet's by Hans Pffffffffff-itzner (another composer with delightful views! But hey,he's dead & let's just enjoy the music! Roll Eyes Grin) this is more like it! Lot's of interesting instrumentation & ideas. It's not exactly tuneful,but there's lyricism & some fibre,which helps the medicine go down (Wasn't that supposed to be sugar?! Roll Eyes). Pfitzner,later,turned the String Quartet op.36 in c sharp minor into a full blown symphony for orchestra. If you enjoy Berg & Zemlinsly (String Quartet's 2-4) there's the same tortured lyricism,but not too severe that it frighten's duffer's like me who head for the nearest air raid shelter as soon as they hear the name's,Stockhausen or Birtwistle! Shocked Grin


Actually,listening to Schillings & Pfitzner makes me wonder whether Cpo will get around to recording the music of Max Trapp (1887-1971). Another composer with unpleasent political affiliation's & views! Not saying they should. But it's a mildly,intriguing thought!
