Description: Some rare, late Xenakis here, the biggest being Epicycles of 1989, written at a time when the composer had turned to a severe austerity with monody, polyphony and rhythmic unison replacing glissandi, quarter-tones, noises and special effects. However, there is much brutality, tension and energy on display in the even later Paille in the Wind (1992), Roscobeck and Hunem-Iduhey (both 1996) for hard-core Xenakis fans. Arne Deforce (cello), Benjamin Dieltjens (clarinet), Daan Vandewalle (piano), Wibert Aerts (violin), Lode Leire (double bass), Ensemble musikFabrik; James Wood (Epicycles).
