"But, in contrast with many of his contemporaries, who will be remembered foremost for their early work, Nono (1924-1990) came to full bloom only at the end of his life. From 1975 onwards he dedicated himself to the composition of a number of closely related works such as ‘Das Atmende Klarsein’ (1980-1983), ‘André Richard’ (1981), ‘Guai ai gelidi Mostri’ (1983) and ‘Quando stanno morendo, Diario Polacco nr. 2 (1982). Apart from the important string quartet ‘Fragmente-Stille. An Diotima’(1979-80) and works like “Hay que caminar” sonando’ (1989), which enclose the whole as a kind of prologue and epilogue, we can envisage all the works of this period as an archipelago, in the middle of which arises the island of islands: the ‘Prometeo’. This ‘tragedia dell’ascolto’, originally conceived for the San Marco in Venice, was premiered in 1984 in the San Lorenzo in Venice. But it is the second version, reworked on the basis of his experience in the San Lorenzo in Venice, and premiered in the Scala di Milano in 1985, that has hence been performed in many places throughout the entire world. Not only is the ‘Prometeo’ the jewel in the crown of Nono’s oeuvre, it may also be considered one of the best works composed in the past century. And that holds especially true of the unforgettable last movement of this opera: the wonderful ‘Stasimo Secondo’."

"Mr. Pintscher’s compositions are noted for the delicate sound world they inhabit, the intricacy of their construction and their precision of expression."
