I remember those commercials!  I generally saw them in the station breaks for Jeopardy!

I think I do, too. At any rate I know my dad had the LPs.

'Great contrast' - absolutely right!
Thanks for suggesting this list, α | ì Æ ñ.
It was very interesting to listen, and I'm glad to have done so, but to be honest, this sort of music turns out not to be my cup of tea.

I enjoyed and quite liked the Webern - was bored by the Bartok - could hardly stand listening to the Stockhausen :) - and admired the clever artistry of the Xenakis, Ligeti and Penderecki, but didn't enjoy the uneasiness they induced in me.

It all helps to give me a 'mind-map' of classical music - where it's been, and where it's going. Thanks again!

Webern - Symphony op 21
Bartok - Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta
Stravinsky - Agon
Varese - Ameriques
Stockhausen - Gruppen
Xenakis - Jonchaies
Ligeti - Atmospheres
Penderecki - Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima

That's is so close to my list that it is not funny

Varese - Poème électronique   
Varese - Hyperprism
Varese - Ionisation
Varese - Ameriques
Stockhausen - Gruppen
Varese - Octandre
Cage - ASLSP
Cage- 4'33"

$11.98 sounds very reasonable - unless you want them on cassette or 8-track ;).
