Fantasy & Fugue / Nocturne / Synthesis For Orchestra & Electronic Sound / Fantasia For Organ
(CRI) Used LP $18.00
The Polish National Radio Orchestra brings Reigger’s atonal-not-atonal message to life, namely that cosmic forces must dominate over humanity’s ceaseless striving. The Hessian Radio Symphony Orchestra navigates Luening’s concerto-like polarization of electronic synthesizer and orchestral sounds, while organist Ralph Kneeream keeps the accents of the fantasia strong and deep. McPhee’s modal piece for chamber orchestra is impressionist and exoticistic.
