“We all like music that is rigorous and uncompromising”, says Matthias Engler. Donatoni relentlessly strings together di­verse fields of sound, working on them like a sculp­tor. Sometimes there are caesuras and then suddenly we hear something completely. However, contained in every piece is a point of reference, to which every­thing else can be traced back.

The four solo pieces and three chamber musical pieces on this CD show exactly this intransigence and connections exemplarily.
