Cope's first EMI disc, "Bach By Design" (1994) was all digital piano, and suffered a certain sameness of sound for it. Here he has wisely chosen human interpreters for EMI's scores, which breathes some additional life into the performances. In addition to piano (by Mary Jane Cope), one piece is performed by a Balinese gamelan orchestra, a couple feature a small string/wind ensemble, and five are by vocalist + piano.
In all, this disc is an effective shot across the bow announcing that, in the not-too-distant future, computer composition won't be the novelty it is today.
