A new year and a new decade have begun, and with that comes new music. This month, we’re proud to introduce the latest in Navona Records’ MOTO series, solo and chamber works, and much more.
Dive in and discover new music from: Taktus, Joseph Summer, Anne Neikirk, Trio Casals, Diane Jones, Edna Alejandra Longoria, Ovidiu Marinescu, Christina Rusnak, Chad Robinson, Clive Muncaster, Joanna Estelle, Eliane Aberdam, and John McGuire.
Bolstered by their love of the rich harmonies and clever rhythmic interplay in the music of Ann Southam and Philip Glass, the members of Taktus translate the language of piano into the marimba in their new album, Ravello Records’ MIRRORED GLASS.
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.
