For my money, the Boulez conducts Varese (NY Phil. and Ensemble Intercontemporain) on Sony Classical is THE essential collection.<br><br>If you don't have it, GET IT.

Could someone put a link between this topic and "Ionisation" topic on Randamonium? I'd like to do this but I'm not able... Thanks.

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=general;num=1030041385;start=0#6 date=12/17/02 at 22:16:03]My favorite Varese piece is Poeme Electronique, a tape piece...It must have been quite a spectacle...[/quote]<br>"Poem Electronique...created in close collaboration with the architect Le Corbusier for the Phillips Radio Corporation's pavillion at the Brussels Exposition.Le Corbusier designed the pavillion in the shape of a three-peaked circus tent externally and (to use his own analogy) in the shape of a cow's stomach internally.This provided a series of hyperbolic and parabolic curves form which Varese could project his 480-seconds-long composition.Along these curves, placed with infinite care,were no fewer than 400 speakers through which the Poeme swept in continuous arcs of sound..."-from liner notes on out-of print record(the Columbia label-which since has been bought by Sony)

I too have the wonderful Boulez recording...it's fantastic.<br><br>I happen to shar Frank's favorite Varese piece-Octandre. Though Integrales is also incredible.<br><br>The 'monsters'-Arcana and Ameriques- are really good, but I find myself not listening to them often. Arcana more than Ameriques.<br><br>And, hate to divurge from the topic here...but does anyone know a good Ravel CD I should check out? He claimed he was influenced by Satie, which I can hear, but I have one really low budget recording of Bolero and the Rhapsodie Espangole which really sucks. (I don't like Bolero that much, anyway.)
