New World's The Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 3, as was the CRI disc on which it is based, contains the odds and ends in Harry Partch's recorded canon, pieces that do not really fit into a comfortably cohesive contextual relationship with the rest of his work cycles. Of the four works included, Rotate the Body in All Its Planes is the most unusual and precious. Scored for soprano, gymnasts, the University of Illinois marching band, and a clutch of Partch instruments, it celebrates the spirit of gymnastic athleticism, but also sounds a bit like a wild collegiate party. The Dreamer That Remains is Partch's bitterest musical statement this side of Bitter Music and brings full circle many of Partch's key themes; loneliness, leisure, indigence, and the inevitability of death. Windsong is the 1958 audio track of Madeleine Tourtelot's film that Partch re-recorded in 1968 for CBS Records as Daphne of the Dunes. It is easy to see why Partch wanted to revisit Windsong; the original tape, recorded by Partch himself playing all parts and edited to fit the film, is choppy and not well recorded in spots. Nonetheless, it's a prime example of Partch as virtuoso performer on his own instruments, something Partch no longer felt he was in 1968. Water! Water! is sort of like Partch's answer to Spike Jones' movie Fireman, Save My Child!, complete with silly one-liners, slapstick routines, and musical non-sequiturs. Partch regarded Water! Water! as a failure, and yet it is one of his most appealing and amusing creations, a rare instance where Partch directly quotes or parrots ideas drawn from popular music. The New World booklet runs to 20 pages as opposed to CRI's 16, and the sound is far better and louder on New World than on CRI, an aspect that is crucial in the case of Windsong. Wisely, Water! Water! is here divided into 12 separate tracks. As with the other volumes, The Harry Partch Collection, Vol. 3, is still very much worth seeking out, even if one bought the earlier CRI CDs.

8 Great Women of Electronic

From the pioneers of musique concrete to the stars of 21st century clubbing, Qobuz is celebrating eight women who have left their own distinct marks on electronic music over the past fifty years.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
