1. Femenine 72:37
This is the première release of Julius Eastmans Femenine, for chamber ensemble. It is also the works only known recording, documenting a 1974 performance by the S.E.M. Ensemble (with the composer on piano) which has lain unheard for decades.
The music of Julius Eastman (1940-90) is enjoying an on-going period of rediscovery. Known best in the past for his work with figures like Peter Maxwell Davies, Arthur Russell and Meredith Monk, today his own formidable compositions draw increasing admiration.
Joyous, insistent, and immersive, Femenine bathes the listener in surges of tonal colour from intertwining winds, piano, violin, pitched percussion, synthesizer and uniquely the composers own invention of mechanised sleigh bells, which provide the 72-minute piece with its characteristic pulse.
