*2022 Stock.* The best, most efficient way to hear Stockhausen's works is through his official record label and publishing house. The Stockhausen Edition CDs are meticulously assembled with often voluminous booklets in English and German, filled with sketches and other documentary artifacts. Almost all of the recordings originally released on Deutsche Grammophon, Wergo, Nonesuch and other labels were reacquired by Stockhausen, and then remastered and repackaged under the Stockhausen Edition catalog. Under the control of the Stockhausen Foundation, Stockhausen's recorded works will never go "out of print", making all of them available to the public. The Stockhausen Edition CDs are organized mostly in historical order, although some volumes are focused on particular categories of chamber works (flute, winds, synth, trumpet, percussion, etc...), some concentrate on different renditions of a single composition, and some are new recordings of older works. On the Edition no.4, it features members of the London Sinfonietta, performing pieces from Stockhausen's Europe 1973 tour. Kontra-Punkte and Zeitmasze are highlights of Stockhausen's early serial method of composing in the 1950s, and true classics of the genre, while Stop and Adieu employ more open forms. Kontra-Punkte has been recorded several times, but this version conducted by Stockhausen is the definitive version. - Stockhausenspace.blogspot.com
