About this Recording


For all Charles Wuorinen’s longstanding reputation as a modernist, his musical career has more in common with those of Brahms and Beethoven than with any contemporary model. His music, from his earliest pieces through the more recent masterworks, is a body of work as significant as one is likely to encounter. The works on this disc are all trios of diverse combinations, written in the early 1980s, and performed here by the Group for Contemporary Music, the ensemble that Wuorinen co-founded in 1962. The music ranges from the powerfully driven Horn Trio to the unusual and resonant texture of the Trombone Trio.
