About Lucia Dlugoszewski
Throughout her life, Lucia Dlugoszewski (1925 – 2000) was overshadowed by great masters of the New York music scene – even though she had been awarded a number of prestigious prizes and – in 1977 – was the first woman ever to receive the Koussevitzky International Recording Award. Today, almost 25 years after her death, the composer, lyric poet, inventor of musical instruments, choreographer and stage director is enjoying a renaissance. Increasingly, Diugoszewski’s compositions are included in programmes presented by festivals, ensembles and orchestras. Klangforum Wien is joining the ranks, re-interpreting these almost forgotten works with their usual virtuosity and precision. The double album includes selected pieces ranging from the 1950s to the 1990s. Compositions such as Abyss and Caress (1975), Each Time You Carry Me This Way (1993) and Avanti (1980) are here recorded for the very first time.

history: It has presented around 600 world premières, it boasts an extensive discography of more than 90 releases, appearing at the most important concert and opera venues and at the major music festivals. Klangforum Wien has its
own annual concert series at the Wiener Konzerthaus. Every year, the ensemble commissions composers and gives numerous world and territorial premieres.
