Out of stock
Lovely 2xCD digipack + 16 page booklet: CD1 features Luigi Nono's La Lontananza Nostalgica Utopica Futura (1992), an original title, a unique aesthetic metaphor even: one could say that the past reflected in the present [nostalgica] brings about a creative utopia [utopica]; the desire for what is known becomes a vehicle for what will be possible [futura] through the medium of distance. Performed by Tiziana Pintus /violin and Hans Van Eck /sound projection (The Schreck Ensemble).
- CD2 features Hans Van Eck's Nuctemeron (2008), a spiritual voyage as described in the text of Apollonius of Tyana (93 AD) which serves as the basis for the performance, connected by intermissions. Aspects of number symbolism, the four elements and the road to spiritual perfection have found their way into the music.
