Lou Harrison (1917-2003) is a 20th century master whose time will come. Decades before it became fashionable, Harrison created a masterly fusion of Eastern and Western musical styles, based in the sounds and techniques of Indonesian gamelan. He also — with Henry Cowell and John Cage — created the percussion ensemble as a musical genre.
