Featuring works: Harmonielehre by John Adams, performed by City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle; Three Canons For Ursula by Conlon Nancarrow, performed by Thomas Adès; Three Dances by John Cage, performed by Michael Tilson Thomas and Ralph Grierson. "Three completely different American composers: Adams, with his roots in minimalism, but here embracing a lush romantic sound-world; Nancarrow, entrusting his elaborate rhythmic fancies to a live pianist, rather than the mechanically accurate player piano; and Cage, with the gamelan-like sound of not one, but two prepared pianos."
