VARIATIONS ON A THEME BY STEFAN WOLPE
Robert Gross, Koeun Grace Lee
The heart of VARIATIONS ON A THEME BY STEFAN WOLPE is the similarly-titled work by Robert Gross, spanning no less than twenty variations on a theme by Wolpe. Sprawling yet precise, decisive yet eclectic, it’s the perfect canvas for pianist Koeun Grace Lee, and the resulting symbiosis is mesmerizing.
SYDNEY HODKINSON: CHAMBER WORKS
With works written in dedication to family members, loved ones, and friends, SYDNEY HODKINSON: CHAMBER WORKS brings four live recordings of the late composer’s string quartets and a trio, Rogatio Gravis, to life with performances from the Benda Quartet and the Jupiter Quartet.
THE HUMAN CONDITION
Israeli pianist and prolific recording artist Hagai Yodan sounds the depths of existence on his new release, THE HUMAN CONDITION. Featuring both piano and the harpsichord, Yodan skillfully navigates through the seas of Being as described by no fewer than six international composers.
Anne H. Goldberg-Baldwin
Pianist Anne Goldberg and Ravello Records are proud to present PERMUTATIONS, an album highlighting Goldbergs qualities as an interdisciplinary artist. From deeply meditative music to tonally and rhythmically complex miniatures, each piece offers a new realm in which to get lost.
AMERICAN CARNAGE from composer Ken Walicki offers exuberance and zest from start to finish, a satisfying and equally authentic listening experience. Well traveled and well versed in an array of different genres, Walicki shares numerous personal experiences and influences in these pieces.
Lucian Kano Balmer
The music of SPRUCE RITUAL is richly illustrative of violinist Lucian Balmer’s own life experiences, ranging from devotion, love, loss, melancholy, and excitement. A heartfelt dance between western classical and North Indian classical music, this album seamlessly integrates the sounds of the sitar and the tabla, two pillars of Indian classical music.
