Nancarrow, Conlon - Late and Unknown: Works on Rolls - Various

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
For decades, Conlon Nancarrow’s creative activity was confined to the privacy of his studio: he wrote music for the player , punched it manually onto paper rolls, and listened to it played by his mechanical instruments. Working with these player s caused that his musical language evolved and matured. There is no more authentic way of experiencing Nancarrow’s extraordinary repertoire than listening to it on his own specially modified instruments.

This new CD “Late and Unknown” features numerous first recordings on Nancarrow’s player s of pieces either associated with his late output or previously unknown. The program documents Nancarrow’s practice of turning old rolls into new works (“For Ligeti”, “Study No. 18” second version, “Unnumbered Study (canon 3:4:5:6)”) and his usage of the player as a tool for testing practically everything he wrote (“Three Canons for Ursula”). Included is also the unfamiliar “Study No. 45d” surrounded by its companions “No. 46” and “No. 47”, all former members of the most extensive work that Nancarrow ever conceived, the so-called “Betty Freeman Suite”. Finally, current technology has made possible a properly coordinated version of the ambitious “Study No. 48”, for two superimposed rolls, heard here for the first time – in fulfillment of a long-lasting wish from the composer – on one of his own instruments.
