A survey of the "new complexity" on the west coast and beyond, featuring works by Brian Ferneyhough, Michael Finnissy, Roger Reynolds, and the younger generation of composers they have influenced. From California we present Ferneyhough's Bone Alphabet for solo percussion, and Reynolds' ...the serpent-snapping eye... for trumpet, piano, percussion, and electronics. From England, Finnissy's Yvaroperas are a nostalgic and atmospheric tour of the history of opera, as well as an homage to Yvar Mishkakoff and John Cage.
