Notes & Reviews:

The Complete Music of Carl Ruggles Michael Tilson Thomas / Buffalo Philharmonic Carl Ruggles (1876 - 1971) was an innovative American composer who used "dissonant counterpoint" to fashion a body of work both finely crafted and wrought with emotional power. For fans of Charles Ives, Henry Cowell, and Edgard Varèse, this reissue includes world renowned conductor Michael Tilson Thomas with the Buffalo Philharmonic, the original liner notes plus a rare essay on Ruggles by Lou Harrison and historic photos of the composer. "Rarely has so modest an output focused such a wealth of imagination and pungency." - John Kirkpatrick

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
So my recommendation is simple. Run to your computer this moment and order the Other Minds set. Then, take a breath and buy Tilson Thomas's DG Sun-Treader and the New World collection of arcana, and you'll have covered Ruggles for probably your remaining life. And you'll be a better human for it. . . In case you haven't already figured it out, this is an unquestioned Want List item.
