One of my best ‘finds’ ever

Got this out of the library because of the cover photo and WOW what a great collection of eclectic 20th century music. All three works are wonderful, exotic and as different from each other as any disc I’ve every heard. If you have any interest in 20th century tonal music try to get a copy of this. They are little gems that will send you in search of more by McPhee, Sessions and Thomson. Great performance and great recording (as always with MLP). Most highly recommended.
