Conlon Nancarrow: Lost Works, Last Works [OM-1002-2]

Hidden treasure is always thrilling, particularly when it means recovering the forgotten works of a great artist. This historic CD offers a selection of previously unrecorded rarities by composer Conlon Nancarrow, including Piece for Tape, a dazzling rhythmic exercise in musique concréte. Listeners are also treated to the composer's own recording of his study for prepared player piano, as well as a rare interview with the composer himself.
