Poised over the keyboard, with forearms pounding out thunderous clusters of sound-that is how Henry Cowell (1897-1965) has entered popular imagination. During the 1920s, he crisscrossed the United States and Europe, gaining notoriety for his physicality with the piano and the unorthodox sounds that resulted. But this composer of clusters also wrote singable tunes. The composer of clusters also produced consonance. And, this guru of American experimentalism also respected tradition, whether of the East or the West. Cowell's tremendous innovation went on to influence generations of composers afterwards, from John Cage to Frank Zappa.These various and contradictory sides of Cowell the composer are most evident in his chamber music. The resulting "Mosiac" is revealed on this 2-CD set, with works spanning his career from his youth in California in 1916 to two years before his death in New York in 1963.

Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 248 MB

The deceptively simple title notwithstanding, this disc can be described as anything but. Cowell’s signing with Mose Asch’s Folkways label makes perfect sense since both viewed sounds of any stripe and sort as potential conveyers of musical and cultural information. He regularly looked to the natural and industrial worlds as sources of inspiration, rigorously eschewing conventional structures and patterns in his piano works. He also pioneered elements of atonality and "extended techniques" such as venturing into the innards of his instrument to maneuver the strings directly. The nineteen pieces collected here are mainly representative of his early works, which made groundbreaking use of tonal clusters amongst other innovations.

In 1971, Virgil Thomson hailed it as "a classic." For this new edition, David Nicholls has provided an explanatory essay and annotations to Cowell's text. The essay traces the sources for the book and attempts to place Cowell's theories in the broader context of musical modernism.
