Pieces From The Past: By Philip Corner For The Violin of Malcolm
Label: Pogus Productions
Genre: Sound Art
Five works spanning 30 years from composer Philip Corner written for violinst Malcolm Goldstein, early notated works and later graphic works, four of the pieces from live recordings. "It has been a while in the works, but finally Pogus can proudly announce the release of this wonderful disc. Five works spanning 30 plus years by experimental composer Philip Corner, interpreted by his friend and fellow composer and utterly amazing violinist Malcolm Goldstein. These works consist of early pieces with notes (!) though not notated in the traditional, linear way, as well as later pieces with graphic and/or verbal notation as with the gamelan series. And the graphically notated scores themselves are quite lovely.
As noted above, four of the works are from live performances - and they are "must hears" (as of course is the fifth recording - The Gold Stone - taken from the out of print Sounding the New Violin by Goldstein. The interpretation/ performances are intense - and magical - and should be savored.
