Abstract:

Orchestral music has occupied a central position in Lachenmann's work. Although one can divide these works into distinct periods, there is a consistency of purpose and style that runs through them. Nevertheless, it is argued here that certain consistent features acquire different significances, depending on the general context of European new music at the time. To this end, the works are placed in a broader compositional context than that of Lachenmann's own output.
