Luca Pedeferri: Exultation

Read "Exultation" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Lecchese, trentasette anni, pianista e fisarmonicista, in questo suo nuovo lavoro Luca Pedeferri si rivolge all'opera di Henry Cowell, compositore, teorico e pianista californiano morto oltre mezzo secolo fa non ancora settantenne.

Fred Frith: Mapping the Further Reaches

Read "Fred Frith: Mapping the Further Reaches" reviewed by Nic Jones

Multi-instrumentalist/composer Fred Frith occupies a unique niche. As a charter member of Henry Cow, a band for which improvisation was always an integral part of musical expression, he was partly responsible for some of the most radical music ever to have emerged from beneath the rock umbrella.
