About

Earle Brown's legendary Contemporary Sound Series is gradually being released on the Wergo label. Recorded between 1960 and 1973, the original 18 LPs have been highly sought after since 1978 when they were discontinued. These rare and historically important recordings of international avant-garde music have been carefully digitised and remastered by the Earle Brown Music Foundation.

This is the second volume in the series which presents the extraordinary world of contemporary and avant-garde music that flourished in Europe, the United States, Latin America and Japan in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Each set contains three CDs in jewel boxes including the original liner notes and cover. In addition, there is a small catalogue/booklet with an essay "Earle Brown's Contemporary Sound Series" in English, German and French, as well as an information about the complete Contemporary Sound Series being released.
