{ Stimmung: K. Stockhausen }

The "Festival de Música y Danza de Granada", ordered in 1999 to Musica Reservata de Barcelona the interpretation of one of the most enigmatic works of the vocal music of the XX century: Stimmung, of the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928). Six voices prepared to sing renaissance polyphonies produces this special touch to a contemporary music that is just allowed by the cross of performing aesthetics. As Alain Poirier says: Stimmung is a meditative music. The time no longer exist. We hear inside the sound, inside the harmonic spectrum. All the senses are serenely aroused and the eternal beauty shines.
