With “studio reihe neuer musik”, WERGO created a trademark of advanced contemporary music in the Sixties of the past century already. Some of these important recordings have not been available on CD up to now. On the occasion of its anniversary, the label now releases the gems from the early days of its 50-year history: highlights of 20th-century music history which have lost nothing of their topicality and liveliness, in standard-setting recordings of great performers and audiophile sound quality.
This series starts with a CD with works by Bernd Alois Zimmermann. His complex “pluralistic” style fuses past, present and future into a musical unit of the highest order. The “Concerto pour violoncelle et orchestre en forme de ‘Pas de trios’” created in the late 1960s develops its binding power from a single musical nucleus; “Tratto II” and “Photoptosis” represent Zimmermann's compositional opening of time and space.
The recordings were originally published on LP in 1972 (WERGO, WER 60062) and have been awarded the Grand Prix du Disque of the Académie Charles Cros.
