Notes and Editorial Reviews

...[A] fine compilation... Lou Harrison's Canticle No 3 (1941) assembles a delectable collection of rarely heard (and never all together) instruments... Harry Partch's U S Highball introduces Johnny Reinhard (leading light of the Microtonal Music movement) as singing/narrator, with support including kithara, a Partch-designed instrument with 72 strings, and chromelodeon; in these CDs you can be guaranteed some new sounds. ...Another from the series welcomed above; a future American Festival of Microtonal Music is to be hoped for, and it would be good to have sponsors to bring Reinhard's core team of enthusiasts across the Ocean to UK & Europe where they'd have a lot to offer.
