Cogent review of Ptelea by @heather_roche and two other must-hear releases from HCR.

October 1, 2016 Comments Off on Cogent review of Ptelea by @heather_roche and two other must-hear releases from HCR.

Einbond’s Resistance (2012) opens the disc with barely more than the noise of air passing through the bass clarinet’s deep tube, and even this is only gradually augmented with the sounds of keys and, eventually, tones. Yet the work is also infused with the sounds of political protest – marches recorded in New York in 2011–12. Played through a speaker in the clarinet’s bell, these slowly emerge in their own right, a weird progeny of the instrument itself.
