By Stephen A. Mathews on May 14, 2012
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!

Got this for Christmas and am so frankly offended by the tracks 8 through 16 that I want to return it; Schneider has an awful voice and just strums on the guitar reciting poor coffee-house type dribble. These tracks ruin and otherwise wonderful set of relaxing songs.

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.
