Strange Ways

A Portrait of Urs Peter Schneider

Torsten Möller
Urs Peter Schneider is a first round postserial composer – although what this anti-serialist affirmation, in the case of Schneider, can only be partially valid, so heterogeneous is his production – forms, styles, compositional techniques, notation methods, etc. Möller attempts to circumscribe the main tendencies of the aesthetics serving as foundation for this creation, offering precise analytic examination of very diverse works from different moments of the composer’s life – only to find again and again Schneider’s radical artistic stand.
