✨✧ BachCello Suites – Mstislav Rostropovich ... CD
EMI, 1991. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic reading of Bach's cello suites – some of the first, and still most important, music written for solo cello – performed here by one of the greatest cellists of the 20th century! The recording quality is superb – and Rostropovich does a good job of avoiding some of the cliched phrasing that over-presented versions of the material can hit – sometimes hinting at his ear for more modern composers, while delivering a performance that's right on the money from a technical perspective. Box set features four albums – containing suites 1 through 6 – and notes in English, French, and German. CD
(Out of print. Includes original slipcase and book!)

✨✧ John CageLollipops – 25 Year Retrospective Concert/Indeterminacy/Double Music/Cartridge Music/Fontana Mix (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of early work by John Cage – and a set that's maybe not nearly as sweet as you'd guess from the "lollipops" in the title! The box is worth it alone for its presentation of the 25 Year Retrospective Concert – which brings together 1958 performance versions of important early works, including "Imaginary Landscape No 1", "Six Short Inventions For Seven Instruments", "First Construction In Metal", "She Is Asleep" (in quartet and duo version), "Sonatas & Interludes", "Music For Carillion No 1", "Williams Mix", and "Concert For Piano & Orchestra", which was new at the time. The package then goes on to include "Double Music" by Cage with Lou Harrison, the spoken word/piano statement "Indeterminacy" done with David Tudor, and key early readings of "Cartridge Music" and "Fontana Mix".

✨✧ Terry RileyRainbow In Cologne ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic addition to the catalog of Terry Riley during his most influential years – a set that features two long, extended organ performances by the minimalist – both on a par with his best records of the time! The similarity in title to Riley's classic Rainbow In Curved Air album is no surprise – as the sound here is very similar, and he performs a stunning 61 minute version of that song on the first CD in the set – one that's more open, more expressive, and more compelling than even the studio take – as Terry layers his lines on organ in a really beautiful way! CD2 features and equally wonderful version of "Persian Surgery Dervishes" – almost 50 minutes in length, and done at a level that shows how important individual examples of performance were amidst the minimalist canon!

Edgar VareseMusic Of Edgar Varese Vol 2 – Arcana/Deserts/Offrandes – Dona Precht/Robert Craft/Columbia Symphony ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $6.99
Three very different slices of the genius of Edgar Varese – presented here on a set of classic Columbia recordings from the early 60s! "Arcana" is perhaps the most ambitious work here – structured for an orchestra of 120 musicians, 70 of whom are string players – although the core energy of the piece seems to come from the 8 percussionists who handle a wide variety of instruments – creating those stark sounds that mark some of Varese's most important compositions – which the strings, brass, and woodwinds cluster around in equally powerful ways! "Deserts" is a piece that's more subtle, and much longer – mixing a variety of electronic sounds and instrumental moments, with shifting sonic spaces and volumes throughout – all to make up a side-long recording filled with moody moments and more powerful electronic bursts. "Offrandes" is a selection of two songs – in a haunting blend of woodwind instruments, percussion, and trumpet – plus vocals from soprano Dona Precht. (Out Sound, Classical) LP, Vinyl record album
(360 sound stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear, and a bit of tape on the top seam.)

✨✧ VariousI'd Love To Turn You On – Classical & Avant Garde Music That Inspired The Counterculture (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a reference to a Beatles' song – and the set brings together a range of classical and other styles of music that had a huge influence on the 60s pop scene – a number of sources that you'll definitely recognize in later work by the Fab Four, plus lots more important work as well! About eighty percent of the set is classical, in a mix of both avant/20th Century, and some warmer more sentimental modes – and the package also includes a few choice cuts from the world of jazz, European pop, and even global music – so that the 3CD set features this amazing mix of sounds from artists who include Charlie Parker, Jacques Brel, Bernard Herrmann, Yusef Lateef, Bruno Martino, Lucio Alves, Sun Ra, Ravi Shankar, and composers who include Berio, Bach, Xenakis, Stravinsky, Holst, Handel, Williams, Stockhausen, Ravel, and John Cage. 51 tracks in all – and notes that help guide you through this amazing musical journey.
