Charles Curtis - Performances and Recordings 1998-2018 2xLP
New double-LP edition of a selection from Saltern's acclaimed collection of recordings surveying the career of renowned, American cellist, Charles Curtis. Selected by Curtis and Tashi Wada from recordings spanning two decades, Performances & Recordings 1999-2018 offers a broad, inclusive view of Curtis's activities across the diverse worlds of music he inhabits, featuring the music of Guillaume de Machaut, Tobias Hume, Silvestro di Ganassi, Terry Jennings, Morton Feldman, Anton Webern, Olivier Messiaen, Richard Maxfield, and Curtis himself. The wide-ranging scope of this release speaks not to a musical restlessness, but to a genuine spirit of inquiry, as these areas of activity for Curtis have existed concurrently in dialogue, not simply in succession, for decades. Includes liner notes by La Monte Young and Wada, as well as a new text by Curtis, and a download of the full original album. Listed as The Wire's #2 Archival Release of 2020. Mastered by Stephan Mathieu, and cut to vinyl via direct metal mastering by Hans-Jörg Maucksch at Pauler Acoustics. Pressed at RTI and printed at Stoughton.
