This preeminent German composer shapes what are essentially noises -- taps, scrapes and rustlings, though made largely by conventional instruments -- into beautiful, even spiritual, music.
How he does it is one of the mysteries of art. Maybe that partly explains why, despite being in his eighth decade, Lachenmann is still little known in this country. In Europe, his imaginative and formally airtight pieces are honored and performed, and he is considered by many to be among the greatest living composers. Yet the man himself is engagingly modest. In between teaching master classes, he is also traveling throughout the U.
But Foss, himself a renowned composer, insisted on going back to the beginning and performing the entire work. Lachenmann chuckled recalling the suddenly silent audience. Griffiths rates Lachenmann as one of the two or three finest living composers.
Yet he is now 73 and still not big news in England or America. Wolfgang von Schweinitz, the Roy E. Recently, Von Schweinitz taught a class on Lachenmann, whose uncompromising aesthetic he particularly admires. The denial of quick satisfaction was a big theme for him.
He always tried to make an inquisition of my bourgeois provenance. His influence was so strong that at a certain point, I had to kill him, like everybody has to kill his father somehow. When I heard Cage in , my world broke apart. I was also impressed, because there was method in his madness. For me today, Nono and Cage are the composers who have a very deep influence.

Helmut Friedrich Lachenmann born 27 November is a German composer of contemporary classical music. Lachenmann was born in Stuttgart and after the end of the Second World War when he was 11 started singing in his local church choir.

He also worked briefly at the electronic music studio at the University of Ghent in , composing his only published tape piece Szenario during that period, but thereafter focused almost exclusively on purely instrumental music. According to the composer, this is music.
Clarinet, cello, piano Composed by Helmut Lachenmann. Kammermusik-Bibliothek Chamber Music Library.
