Heinz Holliger
I remember Heinz Holliger first of all as a fantastic oboe player.
He and his sister Ursula (harp) performed many times at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Elegant and very fragile.

1967 Siebengesang 3.50 stars  LP
Siebengesang Comments:
Part of the Avant Garde 1971 edition. Cassette with 6 records by Deutsche Grammophon. Very German oriented, so think Darmstadt or Donauesschingen.

For oboe, orchestra, singer and loudspeaker.

What to say? "Events received on a short wave radio are imitated, transformed and transcended. Apart from the radio he can use any instrument, several instruments, instrument and voice, or voice alone."

I wonder what the role of the conducter is? Is he the great manipulator?
