Four absolute masterpieces by one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century. Spanning over three decades, LEPTON presents New York born Wuorinen at his radical best, pushing the limits of instrumental and electronic music. Expressly chosen for this exclusive Tzadik release by longtime Wuorinen fan John Zorn, the pieces here include the electronic composition Time's Encomium, (winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1970); from the '80s: New York Notes, which brilliantly blends electronic tape with acoustic instruments; and two masterful miniatures from the '90s: Epithalamium for two trumpets and Lepton for harp, celeste and piano. All recordings were done under the supervision of Mr. Wuorinen himself, and have been remastered for exclusive release on Tzadik. Essential.
