Definitely Different, Intriguing, Noteworthy
I'm still trying to get more into this composition. Generally, I like it but it's so new in approach and style that I'm going to need more time to really appreciate it, but I feel confident that I'll eventually get there. Ergo the 5 stars. I can't remember ever hearing anything like it before, though there's something about it that brings to mind Glenn Branca's Symphony #1 (Tonal Plexus); and I think it's because it's so totally radical, but not over the top. Here, though, the dymanics are at a lower level. Minimalist influences are apparent, though it is not minimalist. It's somewhat jazzy at times, but dosen't really fall within that genre, either. I think if this could have been heard immediately following the premier of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring way back when, there would have been a civil war instead of just a riot. All the musicians seem totally engaged and inspired; and their play (as far as I can tell) is impeccable. If you go for it, you'll know what I mean. It's a bit lengthy though, so in the future I'll listen to it in two installments. A real triumph, I THINK, for Mr. Hwang.
