POUSSEUR, HENRY: Electronic, experimental and microtonal. 1953-1999
POUSSEUR, HENRY: Electronic, experimental and microtonal. 1953-1999
A great collection of Pousseur's work which spans 45 years, from the 1953 Prospection - for 3 pianos tuned a sixth tone apart, through Racine for Cello (Rohan de Saram) in a 19 to the octave tuning, At Moonlight, for Shamizen, Koto and Shakauhachi which negotiates microtonally between Dowland and Japanese traditional music, Ex Dei in Machinam Memoria for Oboe and live electronics to the 1999 Figures Enlacees for Manualiter Organ. These are fascinating, highly accomplished pieces of real substance that locate Pousseur firmly in the first rank of the great generation of composers that emerged in the '50s and the 60's - and who changed the profile of music. These tuning systems are still unfamiliar and intriguing to the ear, and rarely heard in instrumental music today. Notes by the composer and a very interesting recent interview in the accompanying booklet.L
