Notes & Reviews:

This collection--drawn from the original CRI LPs--provides a glimpse into a critical point in Ralph Shapey's artistic development and comprises several of his most important compositions. It covers a period from 1963 to 1979, when he developed from an astringent, visionary modernism, to a version of the same that was tempered by a more "classical" character.

"Ralph Shapey (1921-2002) held deep respect for great composers before him, hence the epithet of "Radical Traditionalism," a tag allowed by the composer and given to him by Leonard Meyer and Bernard Jacobson, and also the title of this two-fer. This issue contains the most lucid and comprehensive booklet notes on a composer and his works that I have ever coma across in the context of a CD issue...All of the recordings presented here are reissues from the CRI catalog. Their reappearance in this form is more than welcome, as is the bibliography and discography so thoughtfully included in the booklet. An important release." - Fanfare
