Fanfare, November 2008

…these 1750 Arch Recordings deliver Nancarrow’s fantastic turbulence, allusive humor, and coruscating grandeurs with incomparable visceral impact. For those just now coming to Nancarrow, this is the introduction of choice, while Nancarrow mavens innocent of the Arch originals will find them a revelation. © 2008 Fanfare Read complete review




Adrian Corleonis
Fanfare, November 2008

Made in Nancarrow’s Mexico City studio in 1977, the legendary 1750 Arch Recordings are optimum—a realization of the Studies for Player Piano on the composer’s preferred instrument, operated by the composer, for a tumult and timbrel effulgence caught close and sizzling. This is the collection of choice after which all later recordings seem equivocal and lacking. If you want to know Nancarrow, begin here. © 2008 Fanfare
