  • Great loss. Eduard Brunner produced a big sound and his amazing technique made even horrible deconstructive avangarde sonic art interesting, yes rather humorous (I remember when he played a Lachermann solo where blowing in every orifice in a clarinet, one can say that his ‘interpretation’ was surely ‘better than the real thing’).
