Description: Sadly, with the appearance of this sort-of-mid-priced box, we must conclude that this pioneering series of Xenakis' orchestral music is finished although there is still more to be heard. The recession or just the fact that there aren't anywhere near the number of Xenakis collectors as there are, well, Wolfgang Rihm collectors? 5 CDs. Spyros Sakkas (baritone), Béatrice Daudin (percussion), Hiroaki Ooï (piano), Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra; Arturo Tamayo.
