**Original 1982 vinyl edition of the album. Few copies available**  Four Pieces (recorder in November 1981) documents a long lost studio collaboration between pianist Giorgio Gaslini and Anthony Braxton. Alto and Soprano Saxophone and Piano, beautifully together in a set of free improvisations – really letting us hear the imagination that drives the duo. Two real masters of free music - the two exchanging lines that race beyond personality on an extended version of Braxton’s “Composition 191” and Gaslini’s “March”. Gaslini has indicated that his ambition is to jump over genres in the search for a "total music", and  Anthony Braxton was the "creative" musician who displayed the most obvious affinity with western classical music, scoring chamber music (both for solo instrument and for small ensembles), as well as orchestral music, that seemed aimed at extending the vocabulary of European music rather than the vocabulary of jazz music.

Front and back covers displays the collective artist name as "Giorgio Gaslini . Anthony Braxton Duo", while "G. Gaslini-A. Braxton Duo" is printed on the spine
