5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and breathtaking Sept. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is Gloria Coates' finest CD release so far. For those not familiar with her work, her music is dark and engaging. Though primarily tonal, her music can venture into regions of nearly apocalyptic gloom. It is distinctly modern and profoundly intriguing. This is the musical equivalent of reading Poe. The macabre aspects of it are by no means off-putting but evocative and thought provoking. These symphonies are spectral, mist enshrouded and dusky. If you like music along the lines of Crumb's Haunted Landscape with dense and richly developed orchestration like Maxwell Davies, this is for you.
Caution: you may find Gloria Coates' music irresistable. Should that be the case her Symphony No. 2 also appears on CPO. There are also a set of Quartets on Naxos. Though the quartets are more along the lines of Tavener or Part, they retain the same appealingly haunted quality.
