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 its invocation and parody of Mozart’s Papageno. The two contrasting versions of Phantasiestück show the composer’s trademark wit at its keenest. The title refers to the influence of Schumann on Kagel.

Gramophone Magazine

July 2012

“Kagel muses on 'fantasy' music by coolly and forensically unpacking cliches of Romantic gesture, creating a fantasy on the idea of fantasies. Faust and Ensemble Contrasts are suitably restrained and deadpan - nothing kills a punchline like laughing before you get there.”

MusicWeb International

August 2012

“The recordings are first class and without exception the performances superb and completely committed. The star however is the brilliant Michael Faust.”
