Edition of 300. New York, 1978, kindred composers Philip Corner and Carles Santos meet at the Bösendorfer piano of Charlemagne Palestine to record four-hand piano versions of Corner’s pieces “Chord” and “Gong!”.  The result is a long-flowing distillation of the source of the two composers’ affinity: avant-garde practice of austere artistic devotion at play with perfect imperfections of the uncontainable human spirit.

A small cassette edition appeared  in the late 1980’s and is now presented in a new digital restoration by Stephan Mathieu, alongside a limited edition of 300 vinyl records cut by Lupo.

Details
Cat. number: UW032LP
Year: 2020
Philip Corner’s two extended pieces, in the present piano four-hands versions, exemplify his melodic sensitivity and his fascination for the accumulation of acoustic resonances, two aspects that unite him to the contemporary experiments of Charlemagne Palestine, to whom in fact belongs the Bösendorfer used for these recordings.
