New MusikTexte

The new issue (112) of MusikTexte is out. The issue contains a large section in memory of James Tenney, a feature article on Gerhard Stäbler, and a large thinking-piece "Die Ausdehnung der Gegenwart" by Tilman Reitz.

I like MusikTexte very much, and the present Tenney issue -- like the Ligeti and too too many other memorial issues before it -- is giving proper recognition to an important musician, but I would wish nothing more for MusikTexte than the luxury of a run of five or six issues focusing on living musicians.
