New recording of Duckworth classic

I've been waiting for quite awhile for someone to get around to making a second recording of composer William Duckworth's signature piece, "The Time Curve Preludes."

It's finally happened. Pianist Bruce Brubaker has released "Time Curve," which includes many of the preludes. It's a little maddening that he didn't record all of them, but I have to say I like the Philip Glass etudes also include on the disc. The recording is available as a cheap "Web album" at lala.com and is listed at Emusic.com.

Duckworth, by the way, has revamped and modernized his Web site.
