Helmut Lachenmann Nun for flute, trombone, orchestra and Men voices


Nun (Now) embarks on sound, discovering horizons and situations, a wealth of orchestral breath, vibrations and beats, plus eight voices uttering phonemes, words and ultimately quoting the Japanese philosopher Nishida Kitaro – The ego is not a thing, but a place. The final coda on the word Music includes mu, for Zen masters the need for radical negation. And Bruckner’s majestic Third Symphony – offering, adoration and faith.
