9/10 Jack 27th June 2017

A piece that deserves many more performances, and should be part of the repertoire of every orchestra worth their salt. Was delighted to see it finally have another recording, this performance brings out some nice details and is slightly closer to the score than the original, I think. One of the main masterpieces of the 20th C. that pretty much nobody knows about. The conductor takes extra pains to try to make some of the choral aleatoric recitations of John Glenn quotes a bit more intelligible.
