**Restock of a rare, must-have record for contemporary music lovers** Great dense orchestral scraping and bowing from 1982 & 1983 by Romanian composer Horatiu Radulescu (1942-2008), among the great masters of Spectralism and subharmonics. This absorbing LP includes two groundbreaking works centered around the 'Sound Icons' - pianos standing on their sides, played with bows between the strings. On side A is the hypnotic, otherworldly Clepsydra for 16 Sound Icons (European Lucero Ensemble, dir.: H. Radulescu); on side B, then, is the chamber work Astray for 6 saxophones and Sound Icon (Saxophones: Daniel Kientzy, Sound Icon: Horatiu Radulescu). Comes with 4-page 12" booklet.

Year: 1990

Clepsydra op. 47 (1982)
Astray op. 50 (1983)

THE SOUND ICON: a grand piano laying vertically on its side,with the strings played by bowing.
