Notes and Editorial Reviews

With Earle Brown - A Life in Music - Volume 5, WERGO has again dug up treasures of contemporary music from the 1960s and 1970s: The 3-CDs set not only contains one of the first recordings of Charles Ives's 'Concord Sonata' by Aloys Kontarsky but also is a testimony to the virtuosity of Severino Gazzelloni who is, without doubt, one of the greatest flutists of the 20th century. In addition, it contains music of the group Sonic Arts Union with the four pioneers of electronic music David Behrman, Robert Ashley, Alvin Lucier, and Gordon Mumma. The 18 LPs of Earle Brown's legendary Contemporary Sound Series, recorded between 1960 and 1973, have become a rarity in great demand since the series was discontinued in 1978. These rare and historically Read more important recordings have been carefully digitized and remastered by the Earle Brown Music Foundation. Each set of this series contains three CDs in jewel boxes including the original liner notes and covers. In addition there is a booklet with an essay 'Earle Brown's Contemporary Sound Series' in English, German and French, as well as an information about the complete Contemporary Sound Series to be released.* Read less
