Earle Brown Contemporary Sound Series Vol. 3
"Wergo presents the third volume of the Earle Brown Contemporary Sound Series. Recorded between 1960 and 1973, the original LPs from which these CDs were taken have long been collector's items. These rare and historically important recordings of international avantgarde music have been carefully digitized and remastered by the Earle Brown Music Foundation. The series presents the extraordinary world of contemporary and avant-garde music that fl ourished in Europe, the United States, Latin America and Japan in the 1960s and early 1970s. This set includes works by Luciano Berio, John Cage and Toshiro Mayuzumi, and features the great singer Cathy Berberian. Each set in the series contains three CDs in jewel boxes with the original liner notes and covers." Featured works: Luciano Berio's Circles, John Cage's Aria with Fontana Mix, Toshiro Mayazumi's Nirvana Symphony, Iannis Xenakis' Herma and Roger Reynolds' Fantasy For Pianist and Yuji Takahashi's Metathesis.
