Notes & Reviews:

This brilliant all-world premiere collection of works by American composer William Kraft is a musical and sonic marvel. 'Contextures', Kraft's stunning percussion-based work, performed by Andre Previn and the LA Philharmonic, is set to a variety of deeply affecting lyrics and poems and is one of his great achievements. Also included is his 'Interplay' and 'Of Ceremonies, Pageants & Celebrations', an astonishing collection of the modern percussion section channeling Giovanni Gabrieli!
