Karlheinz Stockhausen Beton-Studie / Zeitmass Fur Funf Holzblaser / Klavierstuck XI on Limited Edition 180g Import LP
Modern Silence presents Beton-Studie / Zeitmass für fünf Holzbläser / Klavierstuck XI, compositions written by Karlheinz Stockhausen. A collection of some of Stockhausen's earliest work, including his earliest piece of musique concrète "Beton-Studie" (aka "Étude") written by Stockhausen in 1952-53 at Pierre Schaeffer's studio at the RTF in Paris. Until 1992 this piece was believed to have been lost. The LP also includes the celebrated "Zeitmass" (1955), and "Klavierstück XI, parts I-IV" (1956), both of which helped to cement Stockhausen's role as one of the leading German composers of the 20th century. Limited edition 180g vinyl pressing of 500 copies.
