This is the one you should get first. It has In Dark and Blue, the PC, and an orchestral work called T'Haran-ngo. The latter does actually remind me a little bit of Xenakis, but not nearly as savage. The ID&B and the PC don't remind me of Xenakis in the least.



I finally pulled for the Erato disc with 'Livre', 'Signes', and 'Tamarit'. not here yet...


Yes, 'T'Haran-ngo' does have a bit of Xenakis in it, quite a bit, but more from the 'Waarg' era.And I did also like D&B and the PC. And also 'Silencaire' and the harpsichord works.


I'm lumping Ohana in with Jolivet, Messiaen, Sauget, Landowski, Dutilleux, Nunes (especially)- many of the "Erato stable"

Starting....uh.....now!  ;)
