With SUMMER’S DISTILLATION, Joseph Summer, as composer, offers a new look at the timeless texts credited to William Shakespeare. As artistic director, Summer presents settings by Brahms, R. Schumann, and Benjamin Pesetsky, curating an overall impressive collection of works for voice, harp, and horns.
Experiential and experimental are two words that can describe Anne Neikirk’s new album SPRING SHADOWS. Through the use of solo instruments such as the saxophone, flute, harp, and percussion, Neikirk takes the listener on a journey through the energy of a fire, the rushing anxiety of a moving train, and the waving of a flag, all through the use of solo instruments distorted through the lens of electronic manipulation.
