Gerd Kühr is a synonym for combining complexity and simplicity, modernity and “tradition”. Revue instrumentale et électronique - spatial composition for an instrumental ensemble and recorded sound in six movements – manage to cross and unite great variety of aspects of musical expression: complex, though powerful rhythmical constructions with hard accented percussion - boosted through ensemble spread in a room - and highly lyrical passages with extreme appreciation of time structured silence. All that with astounding fluency between different characters of the piece, mirrored through pre-recorded ensemble sounds with slight function of echoing. Exactness, precision and enormous performance passion of Klangfoum Wien, brings the piece to endless heights!
