Rzewski: Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues (Roger Wright)

August 9, 2007

A mesmerizing work by American composer Frederic Rzewski beautifully performed by pianist Roger Wright. Alden Ashforth told me once that Rzewsk had the first score of Webern before anyone else did in the US. This would be the early 50s. Randall Thompson would have nothing to do with it, nor Walter Piston. Harrumph.
