Riley, Terry (Composer) & Bang On A Can (Performers). TERRY RILEY: IN C. New York City, NY: Cantaloupe Records, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

New Recording of the composer's masterpiece. One of the most important and influential works of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Produced in a small and limited print run as a Compact Disc. There is no ISBN. The CD is now scarce. Presents Terry Riley's "In C". A new and definitive performance by Bang On A Can. The Big Bang of Minimalism from, incredibly, 1964: "Kicked off a revolution, inspiring such young composers as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Bang On A Can re-interprets this Minimalist classic with an explosive combination of instruments from around the globe, propelling this transcendent Sixties masterpiece into the future" (Publisher's blurb). "There are a handful of recordings available of this Minimalist masterpiece. But Bang On A Can's, featuring violin, chimes, clarinet, mandolin, and bass at the fore, is easily one of the best. The delicate tremolo of Scott Kuney's mandolin gives the entire recording a nervous energy that is much needed on this warhorse. The piercing violin of Todd Reynolds is haunting, and Mark Stewart's electric guitar gives the ensemble added sonic punch" (Jason Verlinde). An absolute "must-have" title for Terry Riley and Bang On A Can collectors. This copy of the Compact Disc (CD) of "In C" is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Terry Riley. It is signed directly on the cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary masterpiece. This is one of few such signed copies of the CD still available online, is enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Because of its very limited number, its collectible value will not only keep but increase over time. A rare signed copy thus. Selected by The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal as one of the "Best Recordings of The Year" in 2001. One of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
