Before the Law

Sciarrino’s La porte della legge (Before the Law), based on the parable from Kafka’s The Trial, is currently touring, and is well worth seeing/hearing if you get the chance. “A subtle soundworld at the borders of the audible”, as one reviewer put it. Meanwhile Kairos have just released an award-winning 3CD set of Sciarrino’s Orchestral Works performed by Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI. There’s a small selection of his earlier works on Spotify, if you want a free sample.
