5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm a huge fan of Powell as a Swing-era pianist ... 3 juin 2016

Format: CD Achat vérifié
I'm a huge fan of Powell as a Swing-era pianist and arranger. It's extraordinary that he also wrote these pieces, which have arranging and rhythmic tricks of their own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A gripping & evocative modern music for two pianos 7 juin 2011
Par Scriabinmahler - Publié sur
Format: CD
The booklet says Mel Powell's 'Duplicates' is his largest and monumental work, which won 1990 Pulitzer Price for Music and marked new beginning for the composer. The music sounds like an eclectic mixture of Messiaen, Boulez and Schoenberg with a touch of Jazz and is a highly original and evocative work that gripps listeners' attention from the beginning to the end like an epic journey through a kaleidoscope of shifting moods, colours, darkness and light, occasionally accompanied by catastrophic explosions. The both pianists are outstanding technically and artistically, and the recording quality counld not be better. 'Setting' for Two Pianos (played by different pianists) and 'Modules' for Chamber Orchestra make for equally impressive listening experiences.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 After many years listens i think I understand what's happening .. 12 novembre 2010
Par G-Man - Publié sur
Format: CD
This was an enigma. Like Don Martino, jazz man goes serialist serious academic. For many years listens it's logic seemed more random than most 20th C. material. Yet it was pretty, like watching the stars at night really reflecting different strengths of light back, not boring, so I kept assuming the old serialist architecture might somehow justify this as more than mere random cloud watching and eventually deliver a more cohesive whole.

Recently I was in the right mood, and I saw it there, like a layered abstract painting, I heard it so as to understand the meaning of the name "Duplicates". It's a subtle impressionism, but it has force, gusto.

Sensuous, a bit in the later-Boulez lushness, but unlike Boulez, the ascetic 20th C dissonance is included, so the music does not hang prettily in space, but rather clashes and splashes, chemicals thrown together for moderate fireworks FORCE, the sub-Varesian forces that compromise, creating drama, event and flow, rather than too much bombast.

The other works are a bit like remixes, both carrying the same sound and momentum.

The whole thing is tonal enough for regular harmony if there's a group listening, starry enough to be spacey and ambient even, yet it's more that the harmonies and dissonances catch the light. It sounds like it belongs within the bounds of the "beautiful" natural world in other words.

There are some crystals in the mine. Immersion is possible. It hasn't dated and doesn't sound anything like academic music from rigid dry serialists or neo-classicists.

(Bonus: crystaline, convincing conversation ammo evidence that Philip Glass was the wrong direction for western music, not crystaline, just see-through.)
5.0 étoiles sur 5 it's breathtakingly beautiful in its pristine non-tonal stasis 24 septembre 2016
Par Roger A Ward - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Full disclosure: I studied composition with Mel Powell at the California Institute for the Arts and collaborated with pianist Bryan Pezzone, who was also on the music faculty at CalArts.

Duplicates is both dense and light as a feather. Unlike much music of its ilk, it's breathtakingly beautiful in its pristine non-tonal stasis. The music moves, shakes, caresses, screams and cajoles the listener through a variety of textures, rhythms and timbres that never gets old, predictable or, frankly, annoying. Which, in my opinion, is exactly why Mel won the Pulitzer Prize for this piece. It wows you at every turn.

The other 2 works, Setting for 2 Pianos and Modules: An Intermezzo for Chamber Orchestra, also leave the listener with glittering jewels of musical memory.

The performances on this disc are spot on, the performers of the highest rank and the audio detail is simply delicious.

If you don't like mid 20th Century atonal/serial music, this disc will surprise you with its sheer gorgeousness.
