For the occasion of Helmut Lachenmann's 75th birthday, on 27 November 2010, WERGO presents a CD re-release of reference recordings of works published on LP in 1985. "Here we must depart from a conception that only accepts the 'showy' side of sound, usually promoted as a medium for a certain kind of spurious social ostentation", the conductor Clytus Gottwald wrote about Lachenmann's ‘sound realism’. Lachenmann creates "music that removes the false aspects of sounds by returning sound to its natural realm".

“Accanto, for clarinettist and orchestra, is a savage deconstruction of the Mozart concerto. Consolation 1 is a political essay for 12 voices and percussion. Kontrakadenz generates a tremendous negative energy.”
