Visionary composer with outstanding performances
Marinescu's music has that extra quality which raises it above the level of new music. It's depth and structure allowed me to become involved on an emotional and rational level. As most modern music uses a language which is not easy to understand, I was shocked and pleased that I was able to have this music communicate to me so profoundly. I was also happy to hear Steve Thachuk's (guitar) contribution. He is a considerable artist and this piece is a tour de force for the instrument. Well done!!
Not to be missed
I bought this CD after hearing one of Marinescu's works for chamber orchestra in LA. His music comes out of the great Central European post-war avant- garde, and at the same time incorporates ideas and sounds that paint a free spirited world, where quotations from 19th century works and 21st century technology are allowed to coexist. Some of these recordings are amazing, with top notch players like his brother, Ovidiu, and the saxophonist Russell Peterson. If you want to hear some good post-Ligeti music, this would be an excellent CD.
