Voces is a collection of rare recordings documenting many of Walter Zimmermann’s compositions for voices from 1979–2016. The words set to music range from Meister Eckhart and Hadewijch to Michail Lermontov, Ossip Mandelstam, Edmond Jabès, Tomas Tranströmer, Felix Philipp Ingold and Robert Creeley (with Creely’s voice accompanying the musicians). Performers include: Claudia Barainsky, Tehila Nini Goldstein, Sheva Tehoval / Magda Lapaj, Peter Schöne / Jan Philip Schulze, Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, KNM Ensemble, Walter Zimmermann and Band and the musicians of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company with David Tudor, Takehisha Kosugi, D’Arcy Gray, John D. S. Adams. A rare recording from 1982 was recently discovered: “Freunde/Friends” sung and played by Walter Zimmermann and his rock/pop/new music band during their U.S. Tour in Los Angeles, showing a very different musical side of Walter Zimmermann. This deluxe 3-album set comes with a 74-page booklet containing the complete song texts (with translations) and essays by Albert Breier and Christopher Fox. Lavishly illustrated with photos and art by Nanne Meyer. Packaged in a slipcase.
