Notes & Reviews:

The 1960's saw the arrival of a new musical style from America: minimalism fascinated classical and op musician alike. The music on this CD is reminiscent of living kaleidoscopes, of the cryptical growth and decay of crystals - composed by the pioneers of minimalism.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of all time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the London Classical Players, Andre Parrot, Bruno Leonardo Gelber and Libor Pesek.
