Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Tierkreis (1974-75) is a musical composition by the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. The title is the German word for Zodiac, and the composition consists of twelve melodies, each representing one sign of the zodiac. Described by one early critic as "melodic na vet " in the form of "cheerful, empty-headed little tune[s]" (Kenyon 1980, 78), Tierkreis has proved to be Stockhausen's most popular composition (Anon. 2007; Deruchie 2007; Nordin 2004).
