Notes & Reviews:

Spectralism, a compositional movement or "attitude" that emerged in the 1970s, offered breathtaking new perspectives not only on the compositional process but also on the processes of performers and listeners. Its first-generation composers, such as Tristan Murail, Gérard Grisey, and those associated with the Paris-based ensemble L'Itinéraire, explored the nature of the musical experience through the sophisticated examination of sound (via spectral analysis) and the study of human perception. They spoke openly of the unification of art and science, seeking to write a sensual music informed by understanding of the physical world and psychological reality. They encouraged their listeners and performers to engage, not primarily with the interpretation of thematic and motivic materials as formal determinants, but rather with the sound itself. The music on this recording comes from this compositional movement with works by American composer Joshua Fineberg and French composer Hugues Dufort. Marilyn Nonken is one of the most celebrated champions of the modern repertoire of her generation, known for performances that explore transcendent virtuosity and extremes of musical expression.
