FASCINATING MUSICAL LANGUAGE

Franz M. Herzog has developed a fascinating and highly original musical language, which is almost impossible to classify and is at the same time characterized by its haunting appeal and atmospheric density. He repeatedly combines vivid melodic lines with terse rhythmic patterns in ways that are never the same, giving rise to cluster-like layerings which form the tonal background. In this he links, completely unconstrained, seemingly tonal elements with expressively dissonant tones. In the present recording, the Vienna Chamber Choir, conducted by Michael Grohotolsky, presents us with a cross-section of Herzog’s sacred choral work. In addition to the large-scale, concertante Missa "Lux caelestis", the CD contains Herzog’s award-winning Ave Maris Stella and his Lux aeterna, which excels in its dramatic interpretation of the text.
