This new recording marks the first complete performance of Harry Partch’s major cycle in three parts, Plectra and Percussion Dances. On the original 1953 recording, Castor & Pollux was missing three movements, and the finale, Even Wild Horses, was missing its tenor saxophone part.
The virtuosi of Partch give us revelatory interpretations of these stunningly original scores. Also included is a 7 minute spoken introduction, given by the composer in 1953 on the occasion of the broadcast premiere of this work.
1-8. Castor & Pollux (14:58)
A Dance for the Twin Rhythms of Gemini
9-12. Ring Around the Moon (9:20)
A Dance Fantasm for Here and Now
13-20. Even Wild Horses (24:03)
Dance Music for an Absent Drama
21. Harry Partch introduces the 1953 premiere (7:11)
