From the American Festival of Microtonal Music, this is a great collection, including, so far as I know, the only piece by the legendary Julian Carrillo on CD (in 16th tones), 2 unusual pieces from Partch (settings from Finnegan's Wake), Ives' String Quartet No.2 and Lou Harrisson's 'At the tomb of Charles Ives' (in just intonation). Also included are Xenakis' Anaktoria (in quartertones, third tones and a lot of glissandi) and Scelsi's Ko-Lho. A great collection, a great undertaking and a perfect opportunity to sample some of the many alternative tuning systems probed in the first half of the C20.
