A Picture of Cologne, with a Full-Length Stockhausen

Konrad Boehmer in Interview with Laurent Feneyrou

Laurent Feneyrou, Konrad Boehmer
Laurent Feneyrou here interviews Konrad Boehmer about his experiences in Darmstadt and his studies in Cologne, with a particular emphasis on his encounter with Stockhausen. Boehmer offers first-hand accounts not just of important figures of this key period in contemporary music history (Koenig, Zimmermann), their lectures and courses, but also about what so easily gets lost: the general atmosphere, the personal choices and opinions, the interactions and the tensions. In a word, fragments of the spirit of that era.
