Stockhausen: 'Gesang der Jünglinge'
Stockhausen: 'Mittwoch aus 'Licht' – 'Welt-Parlament'
(Ex Cathedra and Jeffrey Skidmore revisit the babel tower of the opera Mittwoch aus 'Licht’s most dazzling section, 'Welt-Parlament' – ‘World Parliament’ – a multilingual a cappella tour de force of extended vocal techniques. Written 30 years earlier, 'Gesang der Jünglinge' has been hailed as Stockhausen’s first electronic masterpiece, a mind-popping sonic translation of the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.)
