George Tsontakis - Gemini (1996)
If statements of cultural titans like Apple Computer are any indication, the word “music” now first conjures an image of recordings. Of libraries of mp3 files or compact discs or (if we are old enough or hip enough) LP records. Many composers of the last several decades, however, seem intent on composing pieces that defy the recorded experience. They demand to be heard live in the concert hall. One such piece is surely "Gemini" by the American composer George Tsontakis.
