IANNIS XENAKIS "KRAANERG" (ERATO, 1968-69)



This is the recording of  "Kraanerg's" premiere.
Although the composition is a continous piece of music I've post it each LP side separately.
So you have four files...

...for more information go to Wikipedia

Erato  STU 70527/28 (vinyl rip)

Originally available with the LP box "XENAKIS" (Erato STU 70526/27/28/29/30), 1969.

Kraanerg is a composition for 23 instruments and 4-channel analog tape composed by Iannis Xenakis, originally for a ballet with choreography by Roland Petit and set design by Victor Vasarely. It was created for the grand opening of the Canadian National Arts Centre in Ottawa, which was originally to coincide with Expo 67 but was delayed to 1969.


As the LP was part of a box set there's no cover - I've simply added the red letters to the box' front pic for a start...
...only after uploading I've discovered one nasty audible crack on side D.....

Thank you so much for posting this! Wondered if I'd ever get to hear the original Kraanerg, as there didn't seem to be the appetite to reissue it (unlike everything else in the 5LP box). This is pretty much the Xenakis holy grail. Thanks again.

I did not realize this was recorded in Canada so as a Canadian this is a double find. Many thanks.
