Gunther Schuller
« on: September 14, 2017, 11:55:21 AM »
He was involved in the avant grade third stream jazz movement, which is where I was first aware of him. The John Lewis album "Jazz Abstractions." Then, I got him conducting Ives Short Pieces in an LP called "Calcium Light Night" on Columbia Masterworks, available now on CD. He is a good conductor and arranger, and…composer, of course.
I just listened to his Symphony 1965: very sparse and Webernish. I have other works of his; the Oboe Concerto and Pian Concerto.

I'm pretty sure I started a Schuller Thread... no?

Love his Brass Quintet from the '80s.
