Description: This new volume concentrates on Farwell's non-Indian pieces (Both Dawn - a five-minute piece - and the 75-second Pawnee Horses use Omaha melodies): the short 1895 Tone Pictures are inspired by brief prose-poems by Baudelaire, Louis Bertrand and Louise Gaultier (the texts are supplied) while the majority of the disc (40 min.) is given over to the second part of the Polytonal Studies of 1940-52, showing his progressive side. Lisa Cheryl Thomas (piano).
