MOORFIELD, VIRGIL: Things you must do to get to heaven
Six pieces for varying instrumentation including piano, violin, cello, electric guitar, bass clarinet and percussion. Thoughtful, interesting, often microtonally inflected, pieces with strong narrative or conceptual structures using both straightforward and extended techniques; very nicely performed and articulated the way a band would articulate. Great compositional ideas, always evolving, full of twists and surprises. Then there is a short, but poignant solo percussion piece and one piece including electronically modified sounds. This excellent CD will repay frequent listening.
