*2022 Stock. Includes a 32-page booklet in German and English.* Orchester-Finalisten is the 2nd Act of Mittwoch Aus Licht (Wednesday from Light), the 6th-completed Licht opera. This piece has no vocal text, but instead features 11 different orchestra instruments performing short auditions one after another against a background tape of musique concrete (environmental field recordings). Each solo is also accompanied by a single 5-chord orchestral figure, cued by the soloist (the instrumentation for the chords are left open, but Stockhausen provides suggestions).  After the auditions, the musicians all play together using their solo parts, coming in and and out at different points. - Stockhausenspace.blogspot.com
