    I hope you can find something; I've already made my recommendations.
    I ordered one of the Wergo CDs. It's on its way from Presto Classical.

    Hymnen and Kontakte are incredible. Also Kontra-Punkte is now one of my favourite chamber works, so unexpectedly emotional!

    They're very enjoyable, and Stockhausen is quite a witty communicator! There's a "Text CD" I got from the Stockhausen-Verlag, on which Stockhausen discusses Beethoven's late string quartets at some length. Not "lectures" as such, but they make for interesting listening, not least because they demonstrate Stockhausen's enthusiasm for the quartets themselves.

    What I’m impressed by is his grasp of fundamental concepts, his clear vision of the relation between the new music and the tradition. The man is obviously a genius!

    I once went to a performance of one of Stockhausen’s electronic pieces at the New England Conservatory. This was 1971 or 1972. The audience sat before an array of speakers. The piece consisted of endless squeaks, beeps, whistles, and what have you. After about 15 minutes, people started leaving. I sat there for about an hour, looking for any bit of form, and finally left. At that time, perhaps one-third of the audience was left.

    Yes I’m not at all surprised, American conservatory audiences are notoriously backwards and conservative. That’s one of the reasons why Cage and Feldman spent so much time in Europe.
