Cardew, Cornelius – “Four Principles On Ireland and Other Pieces [1974]” – [Cramps]

humana   7/24/2014   12-inch, A Library

The piano pieces on this album were composed and performed by Cardew, and English experimental composer and pianist. They are simple and well-played, pleasant to listen to, and although their titles indicate Cardew’s political Communist leanings, the music itself stands on its own. Cardew was killed in a suspicious hit-and-run accident before his time, but his music lives on. The liner notes are written in Italian.
