 Notes & Reviews
Arriving in Europe from Buenos Aires in 1957, Mauricio Kagel soon developed his own subversive and theatrical musical aesthetics. Performed here by the work's dedicatee, Das Konzert is his typically oblique response to writing a flute concerto, ranging from spectral atmospheres to hectic confrontation. The humor of Pan is clear from the outset, with it's invocation and parody of Mozart's Papageno. The two contrasting versions of Phantasiestuck show the composer's trademark wit at it's keenest. The title refers to the influence of Schumann on Kagel. Michael Faust is currently serving as Principal Flautist with the WDR Symphony-Orchestra Cologne. He was the first German musician to win the Pro Musicis award in New York, and many composers have written works for him, including Peteris Vasks, Gunther Schuller and Mauricio Kagel. Patrick Gallois enjoys international careers as both soloist and conductor. He conducted his own orchestra in Paris and in 2003 was appointed Musical Director of the Sinfonia Finlandia Jyvaskyla, with which he now regularly tours and records.
