Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc collects microtonal rarities and curios, many of them available for the first time. Several were composed before the development of appropriate instruments, performance techniques or notation for the realisation... Carrillo’s I Think of You...recalls an acoustic Glenn Branca. ...The Unanswered Question replaces the familiar solo trumpet with a cor anglais and...uses a Pythaogeran tuning. This combination further estranges the soloist from the strings and flutes to great effect and gives Ives’s piece a still more radical edge. ...[T]here are enough items of historical and musical value that make it a tempting purchase for anyone interested in the fringe developments of 20th-century music.
