Claude Vivier's masterpiece: where everything becomes endless silence

His music had the scent of vanilla and incense, said the critics. And they were enchanted by it. Loneliness, death, love and eternity are the outspoken Leitmotifs in the work of the Canadian composer Claude Vivier. His energy comes as a curious contrast to his obsession with death. In Musik für das Ende, a sound ritual for a twenty-strong choir and percussion, he ceremonially describes the transition from life to death, in which mankind, purified, finally becomes one again.
