METIER's third CD dedicated to the "impressive, thoughtful, entertaining and extremely varied" [Sunday Times] music of Christopher Fox. Performed exclusively by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze, the disc features the 45 minute long inner, written for him in 2000.
Generic Compositions #3, 4 and 5 are pieces for solo instruments of generic similarity - for any plucked instrument, for any bowed instrument and any sliding instrument respectively. The pieces from the set of seven may be played individually, in combinations with other parts of Everything You Need to Know - the ensemble installation written for the Ives Ensemble for which the Generic Compositions were written - or superimposed one of another, as has been achieved on this recording.
This fascinating disc is superbly performed by Lukoszevieze, director of the ensemble Apartment House, whose presentations of avant-garde, experimental and improvised music are renowned world-wide.
" ...the third CD in Metiers series... consists entirely of works for solo cello, played with radiant commitment by a votary of avant-gardism." -- The Sunday Times
