-The "MOST" Unusual Musical Instrument-
Ah, I DO so wonder how my harpsichord compatriots would see this performance !
This is a very difficult music to describe to those that have never heard very contemporary forms and musical ideas...note that from 1 minute 30 seconds, the piece picks up speed, then slows, then a coda that returns to the motives of the apex.
Great composition is invention along with careful nods to what is good form.
I feel there is a dark sense of humor here as well as a horrific sense of being reminded of Bosch paintings...a bit like the movies of the Brothers Quay or Jan Svankmajer; all are creative geniuses.
THIS is not to be missed !
