Devin Hurd continues to work his way through Women's History Month. It's interesting and can spur me to refresh my listening. From his musical survey of Black History last month, I still have not decided about Albert Ayler although Eric Dolphy sounds better than ever to me.
Today's post probably indicates I need to get out more. I'm reading through the list of works and composers and come to Nurit Tilles. My first thought -- why is his music being covered for Women's History Month? I'm familiar with Tilles via Double Edge and Steve Reich & Musicians although apparently I never paid close enough attention to gender and made an assumption. Sorry.
About her work: Scored for piano. This is a piano rag cut from a sophisticated harmonic fabric. There are several tempo fluctuations as this piece breathes through variations in density while sustaining harmonic clarity.
The generally slow tempo adds to the work's clarity as well.
By the way, several hundred CRI CDs are available at Berkshire Record Outlet.
