Posted on Dec 6, 2010

Going for Adds this week is Rhys Chatham’s A Crimson Grail. This unique piece features 200 electric guitars, 16 electric basses, 5 conductors, and 1 percussionist. “The work’s greatest allure is in passages where melody, harmony and rhythm are virtually absent, when all you hear is the visceral roar of plucked strings.” says the New York Times. Don’t miss out on this sonically adventurous piece that’s “Beautifully intricate and harmonically dense” according to the Dallas Observer.
