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