HenzeDer Langwierige Weg In Die Wohnung Der Natascha Ungeheur/The Tedious Way To The Place Of Natascha Ungeheuer ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Wild stuff! Hans Werner Henze juxtaposes a number of different sound groups – including the Gunter Hampel Free Jazz Ensemble, Fires Of London, Philip Jones Brass Quintet, and the percussion of Stomu Yamash'ta – and he throws in some vocalizing by baritone William Pearson. The piece is a symbolic journey to the place of Natascha Ungeheuer, a fictious "siren of a false utopia", who "promises to lead the leftist bourgeois to a new kind of security, which will permit him to preserve his revolutionary clear conscience without taking an active part in class warfare." Clearly the German postwar conscience had a big part in the composition of this piece, but if you forget the dated politics, there's some nice noisy moments – and great percussion by Yamash'ta.
