Earle Brown - A Life in Music Vol.1 3CD-Box 10149
First part in a series of reissues of Earle Brown's legendary Contemporary Sound Series. Recorded between 1960 and 1973, the original eighteen LPs have been highly sought after in the secondary market since 1978 when they were discontinued. These rare and historically important recordings of international avant-garde music have been carefully digitized and remastered by the Earle Brown Music Foundation. Beginning in July 2009, WERGO will release six 3-CD sets of these recordings until the end of 2011. The series presents the extraordinary world of contemporary and avant-garde music that flourished in Europe, the United States, Latin America and Japan in the 1960s and early 1970s. This first Set contains works by, among others, John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Mauricio Kagel, performed by Christoph Caskel, David Tudor, Aloys and Bernhard Kontarsky, The Manhattan Percussion Ensemble, Paul Price and the ensembles for electronic music, AMM from London (with: Cornelius Cardew, Lou Gare, Christopher Hobbs, Eddie Prévost, and Keith Rowe) and MEV Musica Elettronica Viva from Rome (with: Alan Bryant, Alvin Curran, Frederic Rzewski, Richard Teitelbaum, and Ivan Vandor).
