Review by astome August 6, 2015 (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
What a great truly multi-channel recording, originally produced in 1972. Pentatone's RQR series gives another example of a great performance gone by that can be revived in a listening room. East Meets West gives astonishingly intense and refreshing insights - nouvelle musique at its best! The composers Miroglio and Louvier are very well placed nearby. From modern sounds by orchestral percussion instruments to seemingly sounds of tropical rainforests - you always find yourself brought to surprising new movements and sounds. Aperghis, the last composer, is a bit apart with special sounds and vocal intonation, too. This new music percussion album reminds me of The Complex by Blue Man Group (DVD-A), although latter in fact is a rock percussion album. Spatiality is reference, so you might check out your hifi systems reproduction of sound level. In my opinion, absolutely worth hearing. Currently it's even a nice price SACD.
