Corner, Philip & Carles Santos: Chord/Gong! LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
New York, 1978, kindred composers Philip Corner and Carles Santos meet at the Bösendorfer piano of Charlemagne Palestine to record four-hand piano versions of Corner's pieces "Chord" and "Gong!" The result is a long-flowing distillation of the source of the two composers' affinity: avant-garde practice of austere artistic devotion at play with perfect imperfections of the uncontainable human spirit. A small cassette edition appeared in the late 1980's and is now presented in a new digital restoration by Stephan Mathieu, alongside a vinyl LP pressing cut by Lupo.
