The Music Of Arthur Custer Vol. II

I Used To Play By Ear
The Music Of Arthur Custer - Vol. II
With Maureen Forrester/Phoenix String Quartet
David Sackson, Viola
Dwight Peltzer, Piano
New York Brass Quintet; Maurice Bialkin, Cello.
Serenus Corporation SRS 12031

Here is sample from another obscure Arthur Custer recording from a set of albums that I've posted recently. Also check out samples from Found Objects and Cycle For 9 Instruments.

From the back cover: I Used To Play By Ear - For Two Pianists, One Piano, and Selected Objects - was completed in January, 1971. The four movements heard on this recording are selected from the complete seven movement work. A theatre piece requiring a considerable amount of stage action, the composition relies heavily on improvisational interplay between the two pianists.

Cover art: Andre du Besset
