Notes & Reviews:

Lou Harrison (1917-2003) believed fervently in music's power to create cultural bridges. To this end he applied his prodigious skills and creative energies to creating synergetic works that link diverse musical languages. Faulted at times for his eclectism, Harrison responded with a vibrant defense of hybridity, cultivating a musical multiculturalism long before that term - or even the concept - held the currency it now enjoys. His fervent advocacy of hybridity led to a type of transethnic music that truly foreshadowed the post-modern celebration of diversity.
