Karlheinz Stockhausen: Stop and Start Under The Direction Of André De Ridder
Composed in 2001, this piece is inspired by a previous creation for orchestra, entitled Stop.
In 1965, Karlheinz Stockhausen proposes Stop, an unpublished piece whose musical arrangement and the choice of timbres remain flexible according to the conductor. Thirty five years later, he resumes his score for Stop and Start. This time, the writing is addressed to six groups of instruments: synthesizer I and bass clarinet - synthesizer II and trombone - synthesizer III and viola - synthesizer IV and oboe - synthesizer V and trumpet - synthesizer VI and flute. Designed as a dive into the fabric of noise and silence, Stop and Start was created for the first time in July 2002, under the direction of Stockhausen.
