More Info

"A Sweet Quasimodo is a piece for two pianos played simultaneously in a tremolo style that Palestine calls 'strumming', a technique that has defined his piano music since the late '60s. It spins out its sonic tapestry in surges and ebbs, and dense sonorities with hypnotically dancing overtones grow from its few opening pitches. This live recording from the Maybeck recital hall also contains Palestine's short comments about his life in California in the '70s and, accompanied by a rubbed brandy snifter, his singing of a few very short 'ritual' songs in his unique falsetto vocal style.' Recorded January 7, 2006." [press release]
