Spring of Chosroes

Relatively speaking, Spring of Chosroes is one of Feldman’s more poetic titles, and the music itself, a sprawling enigmatic vista of tightly controlled material, is certainly worthy of its evocative namesake. It’s really nice to hear this tender rendition so warmly recorded with every nuance intact. Remember that recording by Paul Zukofsky with sound so thin it was as if it were coming out of a piece of string tied to a tin can? No disrespect to Zukofsky (to whom Feldman dedicated the piece), but I like my Feldman served nice and warm.
