Lachenmann, Helmut (*1935)

It is all too easy to dismiss the work of Lachenmann as "musica negativa", in the deprecatory manner that the term was used by Hans Werner Henze in his attack on this composer. What is at play is the fact that Lachenmann's music forces the listener to confront and question their ingrained expectations from and responses to music, in an attempt to extend and further illuminate one's powers of perception. This is far from mere nihilism.
