Video: ‘I fell in love with Stockhausen when I was 10′

The young Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell was smitten by Stockhausen’s music at a very early age and got to study the Klavierstücke with him. In this new filmed interview she includes clips of her sessions with the late composer. ‘I consider his music a completely different language,’ she says.

    Thanks for posting ! Maybe some of works from the last years of Stockhausen’s life were a bit hit and miss, but the Klavierstucke are extraordinary, beautiful pieces.
