This week we are proud to bring you a slate of four albums from Navona Records including electro-acoustic compositions, an album of soulful, aesthetic piano music, and a powerful catalogue of thematic arcs.
Dive in and discover new music from: Sergio Cervetti, Antonija Pacek, Sirius Quartet, Bruce Babcock, Dayton Kinney, Roger Fong, Daniel Burwasser, John Summers, Gregory J. Harris, as well as a new physical release from Michael J. Evans.
Uruguayan-born American Sergio Cervetti is sure to please listeners with MORTAL DREAMS, his ninth album with NAVONA. Cervetti, who, on previous releases, has firmly established himself as one of the most unique voices in contemporary serious music, again delivers electro-acoustic compositions that can be counted as some of his best in the genre.
Playing On The Edge 2
Sirius Quartet, Bruce Babcock, Dayton Kinney, Roger Fong, Daniel Burwasser, John Summers, and Gregory J. Harris
PLAYING ON THE EDGE 2 follows up Navona Records’ first Gramophone-lauded album in this series for string quartet. Like the first installment, the award-winning Sirius Quartet plays the entire catalogue to perfection.
Composer and pianist Antonija Pacek impresses with FOREVER, an album of soulful, aesthetic piano music – in a minimalist style somewhere between classical and popular music. Pacek, who holds a degree in psychology, is no stranger to the conditio humana, and while the temperament of her pieces is distinctly melancholy, their gentle expressiveness spans the whole gamut of human emotions.
The Adventures of Florian
Michael J. Evans
Following this month’s digital release, THE ADVENTURES OF FLORIAN is out now on CD! Michael J. Evans presents an epic, modern adaptation of a fairy tale in four orchestral acts, reframing the story as a tale of trans heroship. Beautifully accessible and poignantly educational, THE ADVENTURES OF FLORIAN brings LGBT characters into the spotlight to improve their representation and educate audiences on the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity. Illustrations by Appoline Etienne accompany the work in a the video version, accessible on the catalog page.
