The Pillars of The Sound Barrier Part Three: Karlheinz Stockhausen

The Sound Barrier : Playlist for Sunday 9 April 2017

Artist | Track/Song Name | Album Title | Label/Distributor | Comments

All of the music on tonight's show is by Karlheinz Stockhausen. The recordings are all released by the Stockhausen Foundation for Music and can be purchased exclusively from their Online CD Store. The playlist lists the name of the piece first (followed by the year it was composed), then the performers, then its number in the Stockhausen Complete Edition catalogue, and then finally its duration. My thanks, as always, to the Foundation for their permission to broadcast these recordings.
