Ahead of his Time

On the occasion of the new recording of Stockhausen's epochal piano work Mantra, Götz Schumacher talks in an interview about the intensive relationship that has connected the GrauSchumacher Piano Duo with the work since its beginnings.

Rondo magazine is enthusiastic about the new recording of the work, released in spring 2024 on the NEOS label, with its "inexhaustible richness that can only be grasped wide awake and with keen ears", as the review puts it. The GrauSchumacher Piano Duo realises the "technically daring radicalism" of this music "with such a playfully light hand that one can only be amazed and delighted", the magazine concludes.
