NOTE ON LIBRARY RECORDINGS

As you know, there is such a thing as copyright in all forms of creative work. Normally, this is to protect the commercial interests of, in this case, the composer and performer.

It is therefore illegal to SELL, PUBLICLY PERFORM, OR DISTRIBUTE  FOR PROFIT any broadcast work or private performance without the specific consent of the artist or composer. 

However, home recording from radio for private study is legal and the few recordings listed below are from this source internationally and have been donated by members and non-members.

They are available to allow lovers of Stockhausen's music to compare performances, and can be requested by members or associate members of this society, founded to promote the understanding and practical performance of this great music.

A further aim is so that listeners who have not done so, will be anxious to purchase the authentic CDs from Stockhausen-Verlag which contain the composer's own vision of how he wishes his works to be heard and understood.

................................................................................................................................................

The recordings 'file' has been divided into two sections - the first is what is available ON LOAN, the second contains recordings that can only be heard at the society's premises owing to their current commercial status.

Nothing will be supplied which in any way infringes the above copyright conditions. Although Stockhausen Edition CDs are available to borrow from some public libraries, n o such CDs can leave society's premises.

An example of how interesting this material is, was when I played for the first time since it was recorded (and fool that I am not listened to but archived) was a performance of Zyklus. I did not think that a performance of this test piece would 'hail the soul from the body' but a performance by Sumirey Oshihara certainly tried. A description in next newsletter. Several performances of Zyklus can be accommodated on one disc, giving listeners a chance to compare the different approaches to this work.
