Complete title: Complete Harpsichord Works, Music for Tack Piano & Fortepiano, In Historic and Experimental Tunings. Performed by Linda Burman-Hall, keyboards. "Although for several centuries keyboards were made that presented more than twelve tones, the hypnosis of twelve has continued, and continues to spread wherever 'Western' culture settles in. Even here there are apostates. The important composer Harry Partch built an entire orchestra for his works written in a forty-three tone scale. Younger people still do this and, in addition, tend to show tunings by means of 'lattices'. In this fine recording of my keyboard works, Linda and I have become a part of such apostasy from the dull grey of industrial twelve tone equal temperament and worked together to take back to ourselves as artists the natural right to tune pieces in ways that are fitting, appropriate, or enhance musical beauty." -- Lou Harrison
