Schubert, Matthias: 9 Compositions for The Multiple Joy[ce] Ensemble (Red Toucan)
Label: Red Toucan    
Released in: Canada    

"The compositions

1 Conlon Zoubeck, dedicated to Conlon Nancarrow, is a miniature beginning from the middle of the piano keyboard and culminating at its most outer points. The soloist is Phillip Zoubeck.

2 Moose is dedicated to composer Helmut Lachenmann and trumpeter Axel Dorner. One hundred and ten sound effects stride through extreme sound panoramas, evoking allusions to a "Nature Morte". Soloist Udo Moll plays on a prepared trumpet.

3 Anthonykowski is dedicated to Anthony Braxton. A 4-layer orchestration is followed by a 4- layer improvisation. The soloist is Frank Gratkowski.

4 Duke Muche is dedicated to Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. Matthias Muche takes the solo.

5 Frith Fields, a dedication to Fred Frith, is a non-interactive improvisation between fortissimo and pianissimo with an alternating time construction.

6 Boulevinsky is dedicated to Pierre Boulez and Igor Stravinsky. The soloist is Holger Werner.

7 Ende der Zeit is inspired by Olivier Messiaen's Quatuor Pour La Fin Du Temps, Louange à l'Eternité de Jésus. It has the same sequence of notes as Boulevinsky but is way slower. The Soloist here is Axel Lindner.

8 Akkordstudie is a study of the final chord of Ende der Zeit.

9 John Müller features soloist Angelika Sheridan on flute. It is a dedication to John Cage and flutist Hans Martin Müller."-Red Toucan
