Alvin Lucier - Orchestral Works CD 26093
Amazing collection of Lucier's Orchestral Works! 'Diamonds for 1, 2, or 3 orchestras' [for three orchestras] (1999), 'Slices' [for cello and orchestra] (2007), 'Exploration of the house' (2005). The three works presented on this album set forth three perspectives on the orchestra, monument of the European concert tradition. In each work we hear unmistakable echoes of the familiar iconography of the orchestra, associations with the past that are the bearers of complex meanings. Yet in a kind of tandem reality, sound itself pushes forward, bringing us back to the present, to our immediate presence as listeners, and to meanings independent of association. The world construed as what is known, as a set of received notions, is gently put in question; another world, the one we live in moment to moment, is briefly illuminated.
