Giancinto Scelsi/Iannis Xenakis/Philip Glass - Anahit/Mikka/Strung Out (CP² Recordings, 1976)

This album, the sixth release by CP² Recordings, features pieces by Giacinto Scelsi, Iannis Xenakis and an early composition by Philip Glass. Italian composer Giacinto Scelsi is probably best known for his compositions based around a single pitch. Anahit, however, was composed for violin and small orchestra. Xenakis' Mikka and Mikka "S" explore string glissandos, and are his only two compositions for solo violin. Glass' Strung Out is for solo amplified violin. He composed the piece in 1967 at a time of transition towards a more minimal style. Download here.
