Boomkat Product Review:
LTM delve into the complex and intriguing world of 20th Century Avant-Garde music from France. Commencing with pioneers Claude Debussy and Erik Satie, this chronological collection moves forward to absurdist and dreamlike Dada and Surrealist compositions (Duchamp, Picabia, Desnos, Ribemont-Dessaignes), as well as the more conventional work of Jean Cocteau’s celebrated ‘Group des Six’, and onwards to postwar electronics and musique concrète by Schaeffer, Henry and Varèse. Works by a number of modern composers (Messiaen, Boulez, Greif, Catoire, Hersant) are also featured, several of these being world premiere recordings by noted French pianist Nicolas Horvath. With a playing time of 140 minutes, this double disc set contains an illustrated booklet with detailed historical notes.
