Wow – Xenakis, Pleiades on YouTube

Loving these videos of Xenakis’s percussion masterpiece Pleiades by the Yale Percussion group. (Thanks to Jim Casella, whose Twitter feed pointed me towards finding these.)

XenakisPleïades: Melanges; Claviers parts 1 and 2; Metaux parts 1 and 2; Peaux parts 1 and 2.

Also, Kagel’s Dressur, in three parts: 1, 2, 3.

  1. Don’t know if you caught this on Hear and Now the other day. It was brilliant performance and one of the shortest-feeling 40 minutes I’ve ever spent listening to music.

    Your blog’s very interesting – my supervisor at Uni mentioned it and I’m pleased to have found it.
