Wolfgang Rihm has not usurped the immense reputation he enjoys in contemporary artistic life. The works of this worthy heir to the German musical tradition invariably oscillate between monumentality – immutable blocks of sound – and ethereal movement – instrumental or vocal lines opening towards the infinite. His choral music is characterised by a syncretism that blends the influences of different periods, which he places at the service of a transcendence and a poetic and philosophical meditation of which he alone has the secret.
