Description: Matre and Sciarrino share a penchant for detailed, fragile extended sonorities, though Matre incorporates them into more rhythmically determinate structures, at times turning the ensemble into an ethereal and timbrally varied percussion instrument. This is the viola version of Nordheim's brooding and eruptive concerto, originally for cello (see 10O76). Sciarrino's 1968-69 piece is a complex, fluid tapestry of subtle breathlike, rustling sounds, delicate and ephemeral. Ensemble Ernst.
