CD Reviews

Articulating a Musical Spiral
sagami | Tokyo, JAPAN | 01/04/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Branca's Fifth is one the densest and most difficult symphonies to which to listen. At times, the music suffers from the lack of clarity with which the masses of guitars are able to articulate the complexity Branca seeks to achieve. However, the first movement articulates a music never before heard anywhere else, and is eerily beautiful. This is not my favorite Branca symphony, but one to which I sometimes return to discover something new."
Behold something real
Extra Fu | Twin Cities, MN | 07/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I give this disc 5 stars because that's what it deserves. No, you cannot fully appreciate this on the first listen. There's no hooks. It's raw and pure. Just the way I like it. What Glenn is trying to do hear is give the listener a real experience of his impression of what music is... I believe if you listen with your body, to what he has to show you, it could be a very enlightening experience. I have nothing but appreciation for the guy... he's a pioneer."
