5.0 out of 5 stars perfect introduction to this 20th century master, 20 Aug. 2009

This review is from: Nono: Como una ola de Fuerza (Audio CD)
If you are new to Nono then I can highly recommend this recording and it should tell you if you are going to like him or not, as it is typical. Como was written in the early 70's when Nono was reaching his climax of political works. Written for soprano, orchestra, piano (Pollini), tape and electronics. The sound world builds and builds with a big sense of space, brilliant mechanical piano parts and big clusters of sound explode out as the music breathes. Very hard to record with all the forces involved and the sound may seem a bit hard to begin with, but the dynamics on the louder parts really come through well.
I love Nono and think he really stands out among the Darmstadt school as the most original artist. He used new methods of creating sounds but rarely for the sake of it, I would recommend buying his masterpeice Prometeo last as it is worth the journey!
