Duckworth recording becoming available

American composer William Duckworth has written more than 200 pieces, but the amount of music available on recordings is frustratingly small. Bit by bit, though, more of his work is becoming available. Percussionist Joseph Gramley is re-releasing his 2000 album, "American De-Construction." The longest piece on the album is Duckworth's "Meditation Preludes." The release also has pieces by Steve Reich, David Lang, Paul Smadbeck and Dave Hollinden. The re-release doesn't seem to be available yet -- at least on Amazon -- but the original is on Gramley's web site, which also offers a 6 minute, 21 second stream of the "Meditation Preludes" and sound samples of the other pieces.
