Review:
After hearing these stirring works by Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen (b 1973), I understand why he has won some major awards (Guggenheim Fellowship, Barlow Prize, others). All of these pieces have inspirations. Phenomenon is about unexplained mysteries like the Naga Fireballs, glowing orbs that rise from the Mekong River. The works contrast awe with excitement.
