Paco DelCaos
5 stars Greggery Peccary features influences ranging from Varese (the harshly persussive and syncopated passages where G. looks for a parking place), Bartok (the part where the hunchmen chase G, as in Bartok´s music for strings , percussion and celesta), "post wagnerian chromatism", Jazz. Some passages are spoken but others are in the Sprach- gesang style (as in Shoenberg´s Pierrot Lunaire). However the one that impresses me most is when the hunchmen dance to "a pile of transistor radios each one tuned to a digfferent station". Is that Cage, Ives or what?
