Der französische Komponist Edgard Varèse, der seit 1915 in den USA lebte, wo auch seine wichtigsten Kompositionen entstanden, zählt zu den epochalen Komponisten des 20. Jahrhunderts, die unsere Vorstellungen, was Musik sein und bedeuten könnte, nachhaltig erweitert haben. Er gilt auch als Pionier der elektronischen Musik und Klangerzeugung. In seinen Werken vollzieht er eine Synthese nahezu aller Arten der Instrumentalmusik als auch eine Synthese der Klänge vom Ton bis zum Geräusch. - Vorliegende Einspielung nimmt unter den Varèse-Einspielungen einen besonderen Platz ein, zum einen "wegen der kaum überbietbaren Kompetenz von Pierre Boulez ... Sensationell wirken ... das Spiel des Chicago Symphony Orchestra, das in dieser Form von keinem anderen Orchester übertroffen wird, und die überragende Aufnahmetechnik ..." (Fono Forum 10/01)
