Helmut Lachenmann was honoured for his life’s work with the Golden Lion at the 2008 Biennale. Listening to Lachenmann’s string quartets, we sense how their aural landscape turns from a ‘field of rubble’ into a ‘field of tension’ – how scrapings, draggings, scratchings and rustlings can fulfill the promise of ‘a new beauty’ by avoiding the habitual.

“Lachenmann remains the most intransigent of avant-gardists, writing music that
excludes virtually all conventional sound production...These “surround sound” performances are outstanding.”
