About this item

New York, 1978, kindred composers Philip Corner and Carles Santos meet at the Bösendorfer piano of Charlemagne Palestine to record four-hand piano versions of Corner’s pieces “Chord” and “Gong!”. The result is a long-flowing distillation of the source of the two composers’ affinity: avant-garde practice of austere artistic devotion at play with perfect imperfections of the uncontainable human spirit.

A small cassette edition appeared in the late 1980’s and is now presented in a new digital restoration by Stephan Mathieu, alongside a limited edition of 300 vinyl records cut by Lupo.


Side A1.Chord: B Major / Bb Minor 9 [28:00]
Side B2. Gong! (Transcription For Low Strings) [21:10]
