Description: The Salzburg Biennale is a brand-new contemporary music festival and this set, four slim-line soft-case CDs in a slip-case with a 96-page book (much like the Donaueschingen releases which have come in box-sets), contains all four concerts which took place last March. You'll notice that, unlike the big-brother Donaueschingen festival recordings, Vienna offers more than one work and includes not only older, more established composers like Hosokawa and Kurtág, but also dead ones, allowing hearers to place new compositions amongst important and less-known pieces by their predecessors. 4 CDs.
