post minimalist goodness!
Michael Gordon's Rushes is an amazing piece and first rate album. The folks over at Cantaloupe Music have done it again! While seven bassoons admittedly does not sound like the most ideal ensemble, Gordon's attention to detail and nuance creates an ambient and engaging work that will reward the listener for many listens.
Very meditative and beautiful. The ensemble blends so seamlessly, creating a fluid, ambient texture that is sustained for almost and hour but never becomes tiresome. I love the gradual shifts in harmony that draw you along, taking you through the changing moods of each section as different voices emerge out of the texture. Incredible piece!
