"An atonal nightmare of pretension."
Small world. I just played a very short work of his for a UCSC class. :-)
Was it one of the pieces on this disc?
Nope, it wasn't one of those ... and now I can't remember the title. Silly me ... old brain ... sigh. I just remember a lot of very long notes; quite a slowly changing sort of piece. I hadn't really wrapped my brain around it, but we only read it, along with three other student works. Time was limited. It'll be performed in Santa Cruz in April.
