I found the following info, too, Tantris, from Neetelbaers on dime, but I'm not sure if that is an audience recording so yours coming from Bavarian Radio is likely preferable for these dynamics! Thank you so much! (apologies if the track info doesn't match yours and is thusly confusing, but i hope something's helpful):

I've been enjoying listening to this, and it's good to hear others are too. There's something of the 'whirling dervish' at times in the Rihm which is great.

BUA - many thanks for the additional information - I had only what was on the BR-Klassik website.

While I am not a huge fan of percussion pieces, but Xenakis & Rihm are two of my favourite composers. Looking forward to hearing this. Many thanks.

Thanks for this. Might it be a good occasion to re-up the old 'Architect in sound' stuff? Just a thought!


SOTISE said...

Actually i spoke too soon, this is indeed a superior recording to that recent dime torrent, which was as it turned out an Audience recording!
