... this is an extraordinary performance.

"Jagden und Formen" is immediately attractive, a piece of shimmering beauty that reveals more with each encounter. Dominique My and Ensemble Modern keep each element in clear focus as an ensemble, while individual lines -- and there are a lot of them -- receive the attention and nuance due a soloist's part. There is plenty of power in dense tutti passages as well. It's a remarkable balance, as much a tribute to Rihm's control of his textures as to the musicality of this ensemble. The recording matches the clarity of the performance . . . "Jagden und Formen" has really caught my ear . . . as one of the most interesting recent pieces I've come across. This release is highly recommendend to all.

. . . the moment-to-moment brilliance, aggressiveness, and attractiveness of the materials hooked me right away. The piece, along with its "Gejagte and Formen" siblings, also seems to be the best representation of Rihm's style in the past decade or so. The performance and recording here are simply outstanding.

Tontechnisch ist die in Koproduktion mit dem Hessischen Rundfunk entstandene CD mit das Beste überhaupt.
