"How to deal with Wolfgang Rihm" asks Seth Brodsky somewhat disingenuously at the beginning of his article on the composer and for some analysts this has been THE question. Rihm's fecundity and apparent lack of system have been a stumbling block to in-depth analysis of the generating processes in his work, although as Alastair Williams has shown in various articles, such engagement is perfectly possible in traditional, aesthetic, and poetic terms.
