Pitted against the Minguet Quartett’s contemporary sensibilities – shifting between tender supplication and confrontational toughness – the textured renaissance richness of the Huelgas Ensemble is thrown into sharply acidic relief. Atmospherically recorded, with poetically pointed notes by Paul Griffiths. (Michael Quinn, Choir [&] Organ, September/October 2015)
Congratulations to the Huelgas Ensemble, the Minguet Quartett and Paul Van Nevel for the 5-star review that their recording of Wolfgang Rihm’s ET LUX received in the Choir [&] Organ magazine. ET LUX was released by ECM New Series.
The CD includes a beautiful booklet with an introductory statement by Wolfgang Rihm and liner notes by Paul Griffiths and Wolfgang Schreiber.
