BENEDICT KLÖCKNER plays ÜBER DIE LINIE by WOLFGANG RIHM

"Über die Linie“ recorded by Benedict Klöckner is the first interpretation of Wolfgang Rihm’s ambitious cello piece. It was recorded on September 25th 2019 at a Bunker under the UFO studios in Berlin.

The composition deals with the crossing of a line, Linie, the mapping of the limits of what is possible on the instrument. Crossing over that line is musically embodied by the extreme dynamics and accentuation, the infinity of the line is highlighted by beginning and ending in a void, as if had always been there.
