The Full Score of Karl Rasmussen's Liederkreis for two singers and Chamber ensemble. The full instrumentation consists of Soprano and Baritone voices with Flute, Violin, Clarinet, Vibraphone and an amplified Piano. Rasnmussen has organised five songs by Robert Schumann into a large cycle, within which each song is rotating forwards and backwards in several tempo-layers at the same time. The circle consists of two independent but complimentary orbits – one for each singer. Written in 1986, it was commissioned by, and dedicated to, the Washington New Music Ensemble.
