Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 2 album for sale Product Description



Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 2 album for sale by Harry Partch was released Nov 18, 1997 on the Composers Recordings, Inc. (CRI) label. The second volume of CRI's series of Partch works includes several major pieces and a couple of exquisite jewels. Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 2 buy CD music The first four compositions are grouped under the general heading, "The Wayward," all of which deal, in part, with the musical rendering of everyday American speech, particularly the slang employed by migrant workers and hoboes in the Depression era of the 1930s.

Or setting the text of a letter from a friend to music, sometimes chatty, sometimes carping on personal matters? Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 2 buy CD music. The result is hugely affecting, as the composer is able to ferret out the deep humanity beneath the superficial observations and provide precisely the right accompaniment, not quite sentimental but extremely sympathetic (although this 1972 recording doesn't quite reach the heights of the original 1950 version). For "Barstow," Partch went to an even more basic text source: the inscriptions and graffiti found on a highway railing in the remote California town, left over the years by itinerant travelers, not all of it "respectable" by any means (the piece ends with the shout, "Why in hell did you come, anyway?").   ...See Full Description
