Max Neuhaus - Four Realizations Of Stockhausen's Zyklus

Lunar Aurora's cycle of insanity has led me to another cycle...of a much different sort admittedly. Legendary German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen wrote Zyklus with the idea of achieving spontaneity within structure..a wholly difficult piece that would separate the men from the boys as it were. It's amazing how Neuhaus pulled it off. Students of percussion should definitely take note.
