This New Music Friday, Navona, Ravello, and Ansonica Records present works that unearth the natural qualities of various instruments, from the vibrance of the viola to the zest of the accordion, the melodic qualities of the drum set, and more.
Dive in and discover new music from Paul Osterfield, Sean Hickey, Joseph Gregorio, Christopher Jessup, Deon Nielsen Price, Heidi Jacob, Jonathan Sheffer, Brett Deubner, Allison Brewster Franzetti, Richard Galliano, South Czech Philharmonic, Martin Daigle, Hans Lewitus, Daniel Burwasser, Arcadian Winds, Sirius Quartet, and Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The brilliance of Richard Galliano’s MADREPERLA stems not only from the juxtaposing of accordion with a full orchestra, nor from the fact that it succeeds spectacularly in doing so. What’s most intoxicating is Galliano’s fusion of symphonic writing with eclectic styles of dance – whose particular zest, allure, and élan pour forth torrentially from these compositions.

A comprehensive release including some of Burwasser’s most beloved works, the composer provides no shortage of musical variety in this album.
