Synopsis

Product Description
A 2-CD collection of piano works by post-minimalist
composer Elodie Lauten, most of which is available
for the first time ever on CD. The albums Piano Works
(1983) and Concerto for Piano and Orchestral Memory
(1984), both reissued in their entirety with re-mastered
sound, incorporate found and prerecorded sounds into
lyrical minimalist piano works in a highly personal
even baroque style. They are deeply meditative and
expansive, but do not require the epic lengths enjoyed
by Glass, Reich, or Riley. Pop-song length seems to be
the standard, yet this never betrays the sensitivity of
the works. Contemporary luminaries Arthur Russell and
Peter Zummo, who were on a similar path themselves,
contribute to the Concerto. Also included in this set is
Lauten s performance of her later masterpiece Variations
on the Orange Cycle (1991), included in Chamber Music
America s Century List of important 20th century works,
as well as other previously unreleased tracks
