Walter Zimmermann is a leading figure in German new music, a prolific composer and a tireless advocate of other artists’ work. Deserving to be much better known, his works, set in a deceptively simple way, are best heard in groups so as to emphasize his rich and coherent personal style. Performed by leading British interpreter of contemporary music, Ian Pace and recorded in the composer’s presence.

Reviews

BBC Radio 3, CD Review

…complex ideas presented with endearing simplicity… fascinating, it’s one of those sound-worlds in which you just have to allow yourself to be absorbed and there’s much pleasure to be had.

” —Andrew McGregor
The Guardian

It is all exquisite, highly poeticised music that deserves to be heard; Ian Pace’s performances are typically indefatigable
