The recordings for Les Consolations were made in November 2015 with the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart and the SWR Vocal Ensemble Stuttgart conducted by Peter Rundel, who was already familiar with Lachenmann’s playing techniques from previous collaborations. Out of the material of about 10 hours’ rehearsal time, we have cut three films (subtitled in English) of partial rehearsals (strings / winds / percussion, harp, piano), in which Helmut Lachenmann, together with the conductor, explains the piece’s playing techniques and peculiarities. Unfortunately, we were not able to attend the partial rehearsals with the SWR Vocal Ensemble, so this was not filmed.
