Description
Now, one of most unusual works of our time is available as study score in a facsimile edition: 'Delusion of the Fury'. At the time of creation, the great experimenter and sound researcher Harry Partch had fully developed his special scale system. By having specially designed instruments made, he created the prerequisites to bring his ideas of sound and harmony onto the stage. Using 25 of these special instruments, 'Delusion of the Fury' provides the opportunity to experience the musical universe of one of the most extraordinary American composers of the 20th century in all its nuances and hypnotic power.
