Boomkat Product Review:
According to m=minimal records, Ernstalbrecht Stiebler is credited as the 1st German composer to base his compositions on minimal techniques. His first reductionist work 'Extension I' was premiered in 1963 and offered a clear opposition to the serial compositions of that era. However, you'd be forgiven for not knowing this because his work has largely slipped under the radar and is known only by the most ardent followers of 20th century composition and new music. He's probably best recognised in his own country for his radio productions and involvement in the prestigious hat ART label, yet that should be about to change with the release of these three pieces. 'Sequenz II for Violoncello' is a new recording of a 1984 composition, featuring cellist Agnieszka Dziubak on a performance of maudlin slow, almost doomy neo-classicism, while 'Mitteltöne' (1997) is an intently quiet piece of glowing, humming organ tones played by Ernst Albrecht. The key, longform recording 'Trio 89' for Violoncello, piano and percussion is performed by Marianne Schroeder, Frances-Marie Uitti and Robyn Schulkowsky, tentatively plotting 23'24 of glacial drone and resonant discord.
