Lentz, Daniel - Point Conception Point Conception
New Age Used - LP L11 Cold Blue
1984 Original. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Daniel Lentz Was One Of The Most Intriguing Young Composers To Emerge On The California New Music Scene In The Last Quarter Of The Twentieth Century, Although He Has Lived In The Arizona Desert Since The Early '90s. (His Has Always Shown A Sensitivity To Landscape, And His Music Underwent A Stylistic Shift After His Move.) Lentz's 1979 Point Conception Graphically And Creatively Evokes The Turbulent Waters Surrounding Point Conception, A Crescent-Shaped Headland On The California Coast That Marks The Geological And Climatic Divide Between Southern And Central California, Which Is Notable For Its Unusually Tumultuous Waves. Lentz Uses The Simplest Of Conceptual Means: The Piece Is Scored For Nine Pianos, And Each Piano Plays Only Ascending And Descending Octaves. It's Not A Process-Generated Piece, Though; Lentz' Development Of His Material Is Largely Intuitive And Has The Characteristic Exuberance Of Many Of His California Works. The Accumulating Layers Add Timbral, Harmonic, And Rhythmic Complexity And Create A Wonderfully Churning, Whirling, Oceanic Soundscape That Occasionally Calls La Mer To Mind. Listeners' Reactions To The Piece Will Probably Hinge On Their Appreciation Of Early Post-Minimalism; Lentz's Voice Is His Own, But Point Conception Is Clearly Sonically Related To Trends Of The Era, And To John Adams' Far Gentler And Less Unpredictable Phrygian Gates And China Gates. Arlene Dunlap Plays All The Overdubbed Piano Parts With Appropriately Feral Abandon.” Stephen Eddins, AMG.... more details
 
Lentz, Daniel - The Crack In The Bell / Wild Turkeys / Dream King The Crack In The Bell / Wild Turkeys / Dream King
Classical Used - LP DS 49180 EMI
1987 Original. Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “The Crack In The Bell Is A Collection Of Five Of Lentz's Pieces Which Concentrate On His Writing For Voices, Synthesizers, And, On The Title Piece, Orchestra; No Rubbed Wineglasses To Be Found Here. They Walk A Fine Line Between Genuine, Exuberant Effervescence And A Slightly Heavy-Handed Earnestness. "The Crack In The Bell" Uses The E.E. Cummings Poem Of The Same Name For Some Lilting Vocalese By Jessica Lowe Over Burbling Synthesizers And An Orchestra Conducted By John Harbison, Whose Work This Somewhat Resembles In Its Cheery Evocation Of Americana. It Almost Gets Funky But Is A Little Too Squeaky Clean For That. "Wild Turkeys," A Synthesizer Trio, Is One Of Lentz's Most Enjoyable Works, Coming More Out Of Reich Than The Usual Glass And Containing A Wealth Of Overlapping Rhythms And Melodic Lines, Much More Maximalist Than Minimalist At Heart.” Brian Olewnick, AMG.... more details
