The Postmodern Condition
Here are a pair of Konzerthaus reviews from last week which slipped through the cracks, of Lisa Batiashvili’s string trio and the Hamburg-based contemporary group Ensemble Resonanz. Not the best of weeks for me and postmodernism, and I’m still undecided about what a recycled in vain did for me, but as compensation there was some good playing from time to time, and Lachenmann. Lachenmann watchers be aware that for Bachtrack’s broader audience there is a generalization of what he writes about the techniques of Notturno; but if perforated sound, among other things, can seem much more than a mere technical term, it is because of musicians like Francesco Dillon.
