Reviews
VALSE BOSTON (1996) is a concertante item, one movement for piano and orchestra. The work revolves (slowly) around a waltz topic, its trilled cadential figure adding a somnambulistic flavor to the nightmarish proceedings. Again, the pensive soliloquy is often intensified by pounding clusters, but these passages grow out of the gray verdure like black weeds and seem to end up blending into the general darkness...A must for Kancheli fans.
