Publisher: C F Peters
Sonorous and Exquisite Corpses
for flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn, and piano
by Virgil Thompson, Henry Cowell, John Cage, and Lou Harrison
This collection of 20 extremely short works is a collaboration by the composers John Cage, Henry Cowell, Lou Harrison, and Virgil Thomson. The instrumentation varies throughout, from movements with solo piano to movements with all five instruments playing. This edition comes as a performance score only- there are no separate parts. The pieces are genuine collaborative efforts, with no one composer having written any one by themselves. Orchestrated by Robert Hughes.
