Description: Yes, it's hard to imagine Amériques on piano - even on two pianos with four players hammering away - but it's not a lot different from hearing, say, The Rite of Spring in its two-piano version: good for analysis, of course but missing a lot without the colors of the fifty wind instruments in this score (and, of course, the sirens and multiple percussionists). Still, this is Varèse's own transcription, undated and left somewhat incomplete and finished up by one of the performers here, so we offer it to our cadré of transcription fans. A lot less exciting happens in the 37 minutes of Feldman works... Helena Bugallo, Amy Williams, Amy Briggs, Benjamin Engeli, Stefan Wirth (pianos).
