Xenakis: Akrata, Pithoprakta; Penderecki: Capriccio for Violin and Orchestra, De Natura Sonoris

Short Reviews:

(Foss, Buffalo Philharmonic, Paul Zukofsky, violin; Nonesuch H-71201). A solid example of what they are up to these days, with Xenakis’ Akrata an especially arresting piece — staccato fanfares and bursts of wind instrument sounds that justify their own patterns of existence.
