More Info

A great collection of XENAKIS most important works, the ideal introduction ! All composed between 1959-1972. Comes with extensive
liner-notes booklet (german /english) !! Music that produces so much of unbearable tension and dynamics that it always seems to be shortly before explosion (or implosion?).
