Two long time out of stock references, remastered at le Laboratoire Central. New design and new format: 2 x CD silver digipack.

We propose here 7 important pieces from 1942 to 1974 performed by the cream of cream of the musicians of the country.

Giacinto Scelsi (La Spezia 1905 / Roma 1988) will always be an atypical composer. Throughout his life, he carefully stepped away from the obligatory musical currents odecaphonism, serial music, etc.), using his fascination with pure sound and taste for asceticism to create naked, painful music on which silence has no appeasing effect. Extremely secretive (refusing to be photographed or even to sign his name), resolutely focused on mysticism, maybe converted to Buddhism, Scelsi has left a body of work that remains little known. However, this could prove to be some of the most beautiful and uncompromising works of our time. He had no mentor, no pupils, but he did shed a lasting light on upholders of spectral music.

Sound is the cosmic force underpinning everything.
Giacinto Scelsi
