'Mantra', composed in 1970 and premiered in Donaueschingen, was Karlheinz Stockhausen's first composition following the orchestral work 'Carré' to return to a largely traditional style of notation and to a relatively closed form. 'Mantra' is at the same time, the first of Stockhausen's works in a style of composition that he has been pursuing exclusively since the mid-1970s: The entire structure is derived from a single melodic-rhythmic-tonal complex, i. e., the 'mantra'. Stockhausen described this method as 'composition by formula'. The unified construction of 'Mantra' is a musical miniature of the unified macro-structure of the cosmos, just it is a magnification into the acoustic time-field of the unified micro-structure of the harmonic vibrations in notes themselves. This CD was awarded the ,,Choc Musique"-Award.
