Music of Fred Lerdahl, Vol. 5

$ 14.99
The four virtuosic performances on this CD represent a number of different phases in Lerdahl’s career, providing rich evidence of the expressive and formal flexibility afforded by the composer's “post-modernism”, though this term hardly does justice to Lerdahl's originality and communicative power.  Using what the composer calls “spiral” forms, Lerdahl's music is much admired for examining qualities of recurrence and reminiscence in the course of variations that blossom and expand upon themselves.
