Neither ... CD Hat Now (Switzerland), 1990. Used ...
The first-ever recording of Morton Feldman's Neither – billed as an "opera", but unlike anything you're likely to hear at the Met! Instead, the piece has a depth and darkness that rivals most of Feldman's key compositions – full of sonic textures and offbeat tones, presented ... read moreCD

Cool Tree ... CD Evil Rabbit (Netherlands), 2011. Used ...
Orchestral works from composer Liza Lim – but all pieces that draw heavily on sounds from a wide global spectrum – which makes the results extremely compelling, and far less standard than you might expect! The set begins with "The Compass" – a 21 minute piece that uses ... read moreCD
