Varèse: The Complete Works
Label: London / Decca
Released: September 15, 1998

For a composer who is (now) recognizably part of the 20th-century classical canon, the French émigré Edgard Varèse's output was astoundingly meager. Just 15 compositions from his entire life (he destroyed the compositions from his early years, and was a merciless editor of his own material in general) made it out to the listening world. Kevin Deas performs "Ecuatorial" for bass singer, two fingerboard theremins, winds, and percussion with corrections from the original manuscript by Chou Wen-Chung as part of this compilation.
