It’s a wild ride when percussive beats meet evocative prose. Experimentalist Luciano Berio plunges into the poetry of e e cummings in his dramatic Circles, saying “Music is never pure: it is attitude: it is theatre.” With electric guitars and wild cadenzas for drummers, the dark and mystical words of surrealist poet Federico García Lorca get a primal, atmospheric treatment in George Crumb’s Songs, Drones and Refrains of Death. Contemporary titans John Cage and Lou Harrison made history when each wrote half of one piece without comparing any notes—literally! Scored for percussion quartet, Double Music is the greatest game of trust ever played in the history of music.
