Synopsis

Album Description
This new release celebrates the explosively visceral sound world of Stefan Wolpe (1902-1972). Regarded by specialists as among the elite of mid-century modernists, Wolpe's compositions of the 50's and 60's can be heard as developing in sound many of the ideas championed on canvas by New York's Abstract Expressionists. This disc includes the premiere recordings of two late Wolpe scores - Quintet with Voice (1957) and Piece in 3 Parts for Piano and 16 Instruments (1961); as well as Wolpe's early Suite im Hexachord (1936. Performed by Peter Serkin, Oliver Knussen, Jan Opalach, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Speculum Musicae.
