Best of 2012: Andrew Lee plays Jürg Frey (CDs)

Those who have enjoyed Andrew Lee’s previous recordings for Irritable Hedgehog are in for another treat: his latest CD/digital release of music by Wandelweiser composer Jürg Frey (those who haven’t should visit the label’s website posthaste). Lee presents a committed performance in which Frey’s penchant for pianissimo passages, as well as his idiosyncratic use of repetitions and silences, are savored. The enigmatic nature of Frey’s experimental music is simultaneously celebrated and
explicated: no mean feat.
