Suddenly I find myself really enjoying Mark Andre’s piano music, I guess like everything, the music has to match your mood if you’re going to appreciate it. A debt to Stockhausen seems possible, on the basis of very superficial listening to both composers!

There are some incredible, astonishing, things on this one -- the best new discovery for a long time. Traces for piano and live electronics, Fantasy for piano, Less than Two. This is a magnificent album.

Returning to this this morning I feel exactly the same way, this is one of the most interesting and stimulating piano recordings I know.

Some might quibble with calling a "minimalist" work avant-garde, but I see no problem. Especially since Rzewski recorded the piece.
