On the review on Hartmut Haenchen's performance of Willem Jeths' Scale, Peter van der Lint writes about both the performance and the pieces.
In this review you will read:
Jeths mixes elements from Mahler's musical magic box in an original way. Brass players behind the stage, the tuba from Mahler's Tenth , a veiled drum and a large hammer block – the ingredients fit nicely into Jeths' own tonal language. Although he deals more hammer blows than Mahler himself ever dared. But the silent end of a single finger over a glass of water nicely cancels out all those blows. Sovereignly executed.
