Harp and angelic song in Stockhausen’s ode to the joy

In the 20th century there is no greater cult composer than German Karlheinz Stockhausen, famous for his bizarre Helicopter String Quartet, his 29-hour opera Licht (Light) and many other revolutionary compositions. Freude (Joy), one of his last works was written for two harps, as part of his 24-hour Klang (Sound) cycle. The tuning of the harps, their playing and the accompanying singing of the harpists are so precisely attuned that we don’t hear a duo, but a single, breathing, angelic being, with two heads and one voice. Freude sounds exalted, enchantingly ecstatic, and at moments fairy-tale-like.
