I have to admit to having a bit of a problem with atonal music in general and Stockhausen in particular. It’s very inventive and this piece, Mantra, is one of the least offensive of his that I’ve come across.
I know that I’m a troglodyte but I have to stop myself from shouting FRAUD! whenever I hear this stuff.
Maybe I’ll grow into it.
It’s very well presented and beautifully played on both piano and percussion, just not very pretty.
