The Henry Brant Collection, Vol. 2
"Let no-one say that Henry Brant, America's senior experimental composer, doesn't have a sense of humor. If Charles Ives had been into Monty Python it would not have reached the heights of epic grandeur and inspired lunacy heard on this second volume of Brant works. Here are three concertos: a triple concerto for Oberlin College's zaniest, a violin concerto for Daniel Kobialka (violin wizard of the San Francisco Symphony), and a double bass concerto for Lewis Paer (who has recorded for Steve Reich and Fame). 'Solar Moth' (a miracle of overdubbing technique whereby Brant himself plays most of the parts) creates some of the mothiest sounds ever heard, at least in this solar system. At the other underwater extreme, 'Ghost Nets' protests the destruction of marine life by driftnet fishing practices. Part Two of The Henry Brant Collection. Certified dolphin safe."
