Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A fine collection of music composed by men who listened to the same things we all do but heard them differently and proceeded to make music out of their observations. Two great pieces by John Cage, DREAM and IN A LANDSCAPE. SUITE NO. 2 and SIX SONATAS by Lou Harrison, TWO STUDIES and BARSTOW (Based on graffitti written on a bridge located in the city of the title)by Harry Partch. And finally, SARABANDE, a short piece by Lamont Young (often considered the father of Minimalism).

All the pieces are performed by John Schneider using specially prepared guitars and Amy Shulman using Celtic and Concert harps. The combination of harp and guitar is very effective in creating just the appropriate mood for each piece. Of particular interest are the two pieces by Cage which I have only heard performed previously on piano and organ. The performers infuse all of these selections with a perfect combination of enthusisasm, humor and pathos.

A very well perfored, well interpreted intersting offering!

A beautiful selection of microtonal pieces. I enjoyed listening to it a lot. The booklet which comes with the CD is great and manages to explain some of the concepts behind this music. Great value.

I hate talky-music like Partch's Barstow, but if you skip those tracks everything else is really great.

Just intonation is based on the natural physicalness of sound,that composers and performers . We haven't, in the history of Western music, instead we have been barbarians with Tonality as our ear- icon, the Western system of what we hear(or don't hear) today is based on "bent" or altered states of vibrations, especially the intervals thirds and fifths. The problem now is that our ears have been conditioned,almost irreparably.Tonality is like an oil-slick touching every shore of World music. If you've never heard music based on just intonation, this is a great place to start. The combination harp and guitar (with some percussion here) has a pure unimpaired quality for which you will immediately say, "why haven't I ever heard this music before". The works here are also by devoted creators who have an intimate knowledge of the tuning non-Western systems of the world. Lou Harrison's music works best in smaller intimate pieces as here in the "Suite No.2". Here the tightly constructed five movements for guitar and harp has a richly diverse constitution,highlighting the solos unique melodic qualities as well as the ensemble chordal combinations. Harrison's music has a close association with the gestures of Asian music,but you always sense he is speaking his own voice always melodic yet with original shapes,lines and contours in unpredictable ways. La Monte Young's "Sarabande", originally for piano solo doesn't suffer under its transformation for guitar and harp.It sounds like wind chimes,a sense of static harmonies(purified now) drifting freely and gently. I never warmed to Partch's music.Read more ›
