Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector
The string quartet that brought minimalist composer Terry Riley back to fully notated composing celebrated his 80th birthday with a box set of reissues. But in that set, Kronos also dropped new Riley gems on us, which are also contained in this stand-alone release. Riley freaks need to hear rarities like the "One Earth, One People, One Love" (a tribute to Voyager that includes "space noises") and the memorial "Lacrymosa - Remembering Kevin" (which employs balladry and dissonance). Along with recent one-offs, a vintage performance of "Cadenza on the Night Plain" is here, too.
