Best of 2021: New/Experimental Recordings

Michael Schell, Sequenza 21, January 3, 2022

There are few composers whose music better fulfills the potentialities of the old saw “It’s not for everybody — then again it doesn’t try to be” than Alvin Lucier (1931—2021). This album, documenting a 2015 Quatuor Bozzini concert devoted to the late ultraminimalist, is a commendable addition to his difficult-to-record legacy.
