TENSIONS AT THE VANGUARD: NEW MUSIC FROM PERU, 1948-79.
A timely and useful collection of electronic and acoustic works from Peru. Thirteen composers represented, 5 electroacoustic works, all very good and one, by Alejandro Nunes Allauca, world-class; 2 works for orchestra; a pair of great string quartets (Intihuatana, by Celso Garrodo-Lecca, is especially impressive); 1 work for piano (clusters and inside) and one for 2 pianos and contrabass (noise), the others for piano and violin and violin solo. High standard of work, and all composers are unknown to most of us, or unavailable on record – so, an invaluable resource for those keeping up or catching up with contemporary music. Excellent sleevenotes.
