Digitally remastered from the original 1981 Labor Record release, and
originally released by Dog W/A Bone in 2000, Czech
composer/conductor/flutist Petr Kotik's Many Many Women has long been considered a masterpiece of underground music. The polyphonic composition sets Gertrude Stein's entire novella Many Many Women to music and marks the crystallization of Kotik's musical aesthetic. Described by Richard Kostelanetz as "continually austere and yet engaging, realizing a musical reinterpretation of Stein's text," Many Many Women
highlights both the musicality of Stein's poetry and Kotik's distinctly
personal treatment of melody. The 12-page liner notes include excerpts
from the original text, plus essays by Kostelanetz and Village Voice critic Kyle Gann. 3 hours 35 minute excerpt on a 3CD set, performed by the S.E.M. Ensemble.
Cat. number: DWAB 003CD
Recorded on March 17 and 19, 1980, at Vanguard Recording Studios, New York, NY. Digital transfers and remastering at Mixture 151, San Leandro, CA, February-March 2000
