Minguet Quartet

Ulrich Isfort, violin
Annette Reisinger, violin

The hour-long piece is dedicated to The Hilliard Ensemble and the Arditti Quartet who gave the world premiere in Cologne in November 2009 and its UK premiere later that month at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. This pairing of a vocal group and a string quartet specializing in early music and contemporary music respectively is replicated by the artists on this ECM disc - the Cologne-based Minguet Quartet and the Belgian early music group, the Huelgas Ensemble whose founder, Paul van Nevel, conducts the recording.
'Et Lux' emerges as if from centuries ago, and reflects upon the musical processes that have shaped it, including the ritual of the requiem: 'What we have is not music remembered but music remembering.' It incorporates text fragments of the Latin Requiem Mass, which appear as components of a progressively realized whole. 'Great significance is displayed by the reappearance of specific groups of words, for example 'et lux perpetua luceat' (and let perpetual light shine upon them). Through circling reflection the comforting yet disturbing meaning of the words may become perceptible.' Reviewing the premiere performance the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung praised the work's interwoven musical and linguistic elements while the Daily Telegraph said of its UK premiere: 'Beautifully paced and very moving'. 'Et Lux' was recorded in February 2014 in Antwerp. The CD booklet includes an introductory statement by Wolfgang Rihm, and liner notes by Paul Griffiths and Wolfgang Schreiber.

It is not Wolfgang Rihm's first setting of the Roman-Catholic Mass of the Dead, nor is it his first large-scale work with a religious slant. In 1995 Rihm was among the 15 composers commissioned by the International Bach Academy in Stuttgart to collaborate on a Requiem of Reconciliation. He was also one of the four composers invited by Helmuth Rilling in 1996 to set the four Gospel versions of Christ's Passion in four different musical idioms, somewhat as a tribute to Johann Sebastian Bach. At the time Rihm took on Luke's account of the Passion. Asked in an interview whether there is a latent religious or spiritual commitment to his works, he replied, 'Perhaps, but in that case allow me to leave it unnamed. If there is a truly religious component in my music, it is a veneration for that which is nameless.
