New Directions In Music

Karlheinz Stockhausen was hailed as the prophet of a new world of sound and a composer of unarguable greatness. He has also been attacked for his mystical, semi-hippie philosophy and for his impenetrable music. Not since Stravinsky has a composer generated such excitement and controversy.

His concerts in Europe, America, Japan and the Middle East offered a new kind of musical ritual, and his following amongst the young is such that one critic has called him the Pied Piper of Youth.

Stockhausen appears in Peter Blakes' famous collage for the front cover of Sgt Pepper and inspired The Beatles to experiment with techniques ranging from the use of reversed tape to the total abandonment of metre and melody - evidenced most notably on Revolution 9. New Directions In Music includes Stockhausen’s Étude (the composer’s first experimentation in musique concrète, and David Tudor s premiere recording of all four movements of Klavierstück XI. These works are complimented by Robert Craft’s historic New Directions in Music album comprising Stockhausens Zeitmasse (Time-measures) for five woodwinds and Pierre Boulez Le Marteau sans maître (The Hammer without a Master).

At Cranbrook And Elsewhere
Released on 21/09/09. A virtuoso of the tenor sax, flue and oboe, Lateef worked with Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis and Grant Green and is today best known for his innovative blending of eastern music with American jazz, paving the way for the likes of John Coltrane who would open up this musical territory in the sixties. At Cranbrook is Lateef’srarest album, and one of the few that has never previously been re-issued on CD. Our edition comprises the original album, recorded live at Cranbrook Academy of Art on April 9 1958 and is augmented by brilliantly adventurous repertoire from sessions recorded in - for Yusef, the hectic pivotal year - of 1957. These selections are those that founded his reputation as a pioneer for World Music. Compositions involving such exotic instrumentation as the one-stringed instrument, the rebab, finger cymbals, the scraped gourd, castanets and the argool, the unusual timbres and colours of which would have come as a huge shock to the listener back in the Fifties. Today, Yusef Lateef is held in international esteem and his work, so far ahead of it’s time half a century ago, has never seemed more essential. Strong export potential to America and all specialist jazz and world music outlets everywhere. Our Price: £9.95
