Description: Jarrell's piece is active and full of pent-up energy, with alternating sections of suspended stasis and frantic motion incorporating some degree of extended technique and unusual textures in a decidedly atonal, athematic idiom. The Nancarrow consists of three brief movements, two truculent and tough, one ethereal and delicate, in which metrically intricate lines are presented in the kind of mechanically precise complex counterpoint familiar from his player-piano works. Riehm's piece abounds in dense textures, sometimes of indeterminate pitch and produced by extended techniques, alongside a motif in dense chords in heavy rhythmic unison. Asasello Quartet.
