In Como una ola defuerzay luz (1971-72), the engineering is still more intricate and inventive. Indeed it's the very substance of the piece, for in the traditional sense there is little enough 'composing' involved: the tensions which sustain the affair arise from juxtapositions of blocks of sound much more than from patterns of notes.
Maurizio Pollini dispatches the piano part—much hammering of repeated notes—with great rhetorical flair, which is all that it requires. (It does at least do something to disguise the rhythmic invertebracy of the whole piece.) Both Pollini's contribution and that of the soprano soloist, Slavka Taskova, are subjected to various electronic transformations and fed back into the score. After several hearings, I find that the sheer sumptuousness of the sound still compels admiration. Musically there is scarcely anything that demands one's attention, but I can imagine that on a suitable occasion either piece might make rather a splendid, decadent effect. Gramophone
