"Far-out music of great delicacy, originality, and beauty of sound, also ingenious with regard to instrumental virtuosities and of unusually high level in its intellectual and poetic aspects."

These remarks from Virgil Thomson's American Music Since 1910 (1970) introduced many listeners to the music of Lucia Dlugoszewski in the 1970s. A search for LPs on the CRI, Candide, Nonesuch, and Folkways labels turned up continuously intriguing music, four compositions on four separate recordings. Not one of these records was exclusively devoted to her work in spite of the fact that as Thomson reported in 1970 she had already composed more than thirty works since the early 1950s. Throughout the next three decades she continued to compose and perform her works, yet only two compositions were released in the new digital format of compact discs. This CRI disc is the first collection to focus exclusively on her music. The four compositions presented here, two from the early 1970s and two from the late 1990s, offer clear demonstration that Lucia Dlugoszewski is long overdue for rediscovery and recognition as one of the most original and inspired composers of our time.
