20th Century Gesualdo?

Patroclus

Part's music is simultaneously enigmatic and simple. When I listen to it, I sense an affinity with the music of the murderous Prince da Venosa. The seemingly simple sounds are the result of some quite complex structures and the ear knows this. The tintinabulatory sounds, especially when presented by the different instrumental combinations, are stunning. This recording is a fine performance and a great introduction to the music of this contemporary master.

Part seems so simple on the surface, but download the recording and dig in. Listen multiple times and pick out the patterns, then it's genius. Tough stuff to record with so much quiet.... not too bad a job.

The stars do not reflect the quality of the music, simply the performances. An adequate starter kit, though.

I can't say how happy I was to find Naxos added to the labels caried by emusic this week and this collection is one of the best CDs they have released. Parts music is transcendent and this recording does it real justice. A good starting point if you've not come across his work before.
