Sven-Ingo Koch straddles the narrow dividing line between a fascination with the music’s edges, fractures, and anomalies and a desire for unity and harmony within the tradition of European art music: "And yet, despite my experience of insularity, I want to incorporate mutually antagonistic elements in structural processes that will bring them closer together." The title of one of his works, included in this CD has a certain programmatic significance for Koch’s music as a whole: "Das Überwinden des großen Klaffens" [Surmounting the Great Divide].
