The last full scale work by futurist master composer Luigi Nono was written for ten parts: viola, voice and eight channels of magnetic tape. Further, it is a duet between a wandering violinist/vocalist and an "electronicist" who controls the feed of the tape channels to eight separate speakers in performance. The ephemeral nature, accentuated by the placement of the Leggios on separate music stands with instructions to play them in an order selected by the wanderer and to not even play all of them, is foreign to the ethos of recording. When I heard it live the sounds of surrounding life mixed with the mostly subdued piece and seemed to enhance the pre-recorded sounds of distant conversations, footfalls and doors closing.

Recording engineer Richard Warp (himself a composer) has done a meticulous job of translating the Cageian chaos into a commercial surround format with equivalent meaning. It helped that electronicist Christopher Burns is the most experienced concert performer of this work, as fingers on the instrument (in this case a mixing console) define the difference between music as human communications and mechanized facsimile of emotion and understanding.

The piece was written for long time Nono collaborator Gidon Kremer. He is inextricable because much of the electronic content is processed layers of Mr. Kremer captured in Nono's studio. Cuckson manages to make this her own by transcending her impeccable instrumental technique into an architected narrative of emotion and simultaneously voicing the specific longing of the title; Kremer never sang, and did not have the palpable spatiality of this state-of-the-studio-art BluRay Audio format. (A conventional CD is also included in the package)

This is why I consider this the disc to buy of one the 20th Century's defining compositions.
