Reworks by Ernstalbrecht Stiebler - Karlrecords [KR062] FLAC download included with physical items


A 5 track ambient album (40m 56s) — released May 24th 2019 on Karlrecords

FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER, BÉRANGÈRE MAXIMIN, JASMINE GUFFOND, PHONOSPHERE and KAMMERFLIMMER KOLLEKTIEF celebrate ERNSTALBRECHT STIEBLER's 85th birthday with exclusive reworks of compositions by the German miminalist composer.

ERNSTALBRECHT STIEBLER (born march 29th1934)is one of the first German composers involved with minimalism and ranks among the pioneers of reductive, repetitive, sound-oriented music. Although honored with several prizes (e.g. the"Bach-Preis der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg"), up to the current day only true connoisseurs of contemporary music are familiar with his oeuvre. On the occasion of his 85thanniversary this year, KARLRECORDS launches a series of albums with original pieces by STIEBLER who besides his compositional workserved as director for new music at Hessischer Rundfunk for over 25 years (where he supervised recordings of MORTON FELDMAN, JOHN CAGE, ALVIN LUCIER, GIACINTO SCELSI a.o.) and publishednumerous essays inMusik-Konzepte,MusikTexteand other music journals. The new STIEBLER series, however, kicks off with "Reworks" – five artists from different musical backgrounds present their approach to and understanding of STIEBLER's minimalist aesthetics for which he cites"sonority, rhythm, and duration" as his three principal compositional concerns.
