Notes & Reviews:

Fred Lerdahl is one of the least known among "major" American composers. Lerdahl's music is greatly admired by cognoscenti, and his theoretical writings are among the most important of the latter 20th century, but his music remains less known to the general public, perhaps because of its non-doctrinaire stance. 'Time after Time,' a Pulitzer prize finalist, is for the familiar 'Pierrot plus percussion' formation. In two movements, the eighteen and a half minute composition employs spiral forms, in which simple ideas become elaborated and more complex with each cycle. Another highlight is 'Waves,' which simply must be heard to be believed. Given a stunningly controlled reading by the conductor-less Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, this recording is a re-mastered release of the out-of-print Deutsche Grammophon recording.
