Discussion: Zofo plays Terry Riley

Posts: 4

Post by undertone June 16, 2015 (1 of 4)
For those who only know Terry Riley's minimalist orchestral work "In C", this collection of pieces, most of which were originally written for one piano/four hands, will prove surprising. These are "maximalist" pieces, on the romantic/tonal end of the new music spectrum.

Until a site administrator catches up with the 'report errors' email I sent earlier, here are the actual resolutions on the Blu-Ray disc:

2.0 LPCM 24bit/192kHz
5.1 DTS HD MA 24bit/192kHz
7.1 DTS HD MA 24bit/96kHz

I had the pleasure of hearing the entire Terry Riley program performed at a house concert run-through prior to the recording sessions. The 2.0 LPCM track sounds superb, the best-engineered of the three Blu-Ray releases Sono Luminus has done with ZOFO.

If any SA-CD members who have an interest in contemporary classical music, a Blu-Ray audio player and an MCH system, and who live in San Francisco would like to audition this disc (and facilitate inclusion of an MCH rating in the review I'm writing), feel free to contact me through the website shown in my profile.

Thanks for the heads up, undertone.

Will definitely add this to my list.

Have so far been VERY impressed with Sono Luminus' BD~A output and it's gratifying to hear that they have a benchmark recording in Zofo Plays Terry Riley.

Have you heard Zofo's interpretation of Holst's The Planets ZOFORBIT - ZOFO

Rammie, I've got the ZOFORBIT Blu-Ray and also heard ZOFO perform The Planets in concert. ZOFO is a kick to watch live; beyond the instrumental virtuosity, there is an elegant (and sometimes furious!) choreography to their movements on the piano bench.

Wow, that's dazzling! I've got Zoforbit: The Planets, but somehow, it never occurred to me to see if there were any clips on Youtube, so that's the first time I've seen them play and boy, is it special to watch or what!
