Description: It's uncertain how many volumes this series will comprise (only two are mentioned in the notes) but this volume offers three pieces not currently available: the quartet from 1961 and the two Funerali works (1962 and 1976). The first two are before Scelsi devoted himself to single-note investigations and the quartet even uses polyphony and counterpoint while both Funerali evoke the timeless ritual of the funeral through human history, the newer one employing a cello one-note rhythm/drone over hypnotic percussion. Roberto Fabbriciani (flute), Torino String Quartet, Soloists of the MusicaTeatroEnsemble, Fabrizio Ottaviucci (piano), Francesco Dillo (cello), Fulvia Ricevuto (percussion).
