Since the publication of this opinion, Julius Eastman's work, forgotten for a quarter of a century, has become the center of attention of the London Contemporary Music Festival, MaerzMusik in Berlin and the Sacrum Profanum festival in Krakow, as well as reaching the opinion-forming press on both sides of the Atlantic. Now you can listen to new versions of Eastman's most famous work (under the provocative title Evil Nigger) that have just been released. Cascades of sounds, usually generated by four pianos, this time enlivened the famous Arditti String Quartet (arranged by Tomasz Opalka) and two Polish accordion masters, Rafal Luc and Maciej Frackiewicz (arranged by Piotr Peszat).
