Raymond Hanson Preludes opus 11
on: January 21, 2004, 04:54:23 PM
(i think it's opus 11, anyway)

has anyone heard of these?  they're by an australian, and their very contemporary and abstract.  he seems to have invented his own musical language.

i've worked on no 4, and it's one of may favourites...a wonderful exercise in tension and climax.

Is he related to Howard Hanson (USA)?
