*2022 Stock.* Hoch-Zeiten (High-Times, 2001/02, 5th scene of Sonntag aus Licht) for orchestra and choir. The 5th scene of Sonntag aus Licht is actually a 2-part conception. One part is staged as an instrumental orchestral work, and the other is a simultaneous a cappella choral work performed in another room. However, sounds from the orchestral part are piped into the choral work, and vice-versa. This CD presents the orchestra point of view (WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne), followed by that of the choral group (WDR Choir Cologne). Antonio Pérez Abéllan provides the subtle synthesizer elements. Musically, each ensemble explores static harmonies but with a dynamic emphasis on polyphonic embellishment and articulation. Additionally, several short "sub-scenes" are instrumentally recalled/re-interpreted from other major Licht scenes. This is often a dense listen, but CDs 71 and 72 break out the individual instrumental and choral sub-groups for closer inspection and further appreciation. - Stockhausenspace.blogspot.com
