<<<  <<  -- 5 --  Malcolm Tattersall    A WONDERFUL INTRODUCTION


Innova says:
The Enclosures series, named after Partch's last contemplated work and released on the innova Recordings label of the American Composers Forum, is the culmination of a 13-year endeavor by Dr Philip Blackburn ... Inspired by Partch's pioneering spirit and dearth of published materials, Blackburn worked with the Harry Partch Foundation, colleague Kenneth Gaburo, and many others to bring Partch's singular voice to the public, attempting to 'let Harry speak for himself.'

Congratulations to all concerned. They have achieved their objective.
