Helmut Lachenmann

Lachenmann was born in Stuttgart. He studied piano with Jürgen Uhde and composition and theory with Johann Nepomuk David at the StuttgarterMusikhochschule from 1955 to 1958 and was the first private student of Luigi Nono in Venice from 1958 to 1960. From Nono, he acquired the beliefthat music should aim to serve a message of social relevance.

Lachenmann was born in Stuttgart. He studied piano with Jürgen Uhde and composition and theory with Johann Nepomuk David at the StuttgarterMusikhochschule from 1955 to 1958 and was the first private student of Luigi Nono in Venice from 1958 to 1960. From Nono, he acquired the beliefthat music should aim to serve a message of social relevance. He also worked briefly at the electronic music studio at the University of Ghent in 1965,but thereafter focused almost exclusively on purely instrumental music.

His music has often been called musique concrète instrumentale, a term that the composer originated, which implies music that imitates electronicsounds through instrumental means. According to the composer, this is music “in which the sound events are chosen and organized so that themanner in which they are generated is at least as important as the resultant acoustic qualities themselves. Consequently those qualities, such astimbre, volume, etc., do not produce sounds for their own sake, but describe or denote the concrete situation: listening, you hear the conditions underwhich a sound- or noise-action is carried out, you hear what materials and energies are involved and what resistance is encountered”. His music istherefore primarily derived from the most basic of sounds, which through processes of amplification serve as the bases for extended works. His scoresplace enormous demands on performers, due to the plethora of techniques that he has invented for wind, brass and string instruments. « hide
