Rosenman-Chamber Music No.2 & Kraft-Des Imagistes

24 Jul

This is not exactly “whistle a happy tune” classical music, and it may be a good idea to start with the second piece on this album, the William Kraft composition ‘Des Imagistes’. This piece for percussion and voice is performed around the audience, making it a good choice for quadraphonic sound. Also, the voices move about making it a good example of imaging if your speakers are timed or arranged properly.
From the point of view of quadraphonic history, this is, alas, the only quad album issued by the audiophile label Delos. It’s almost as if their engineers were given a new toy, and quad mixer and encoder, to play with and they went nuts.
After your ears have tuned to the Kraft, you may want to give yourself some time with the Rosenman piece if only to listen to the audio engineering, and who knows this eclectic 20th Century idiom may grow on you.
