Format: Audio CD
One of the joys of listening to music by little-known composers is that sometimes you really luck onto something wonderful. And that is what has happened for me with this CD of some chamber music by Elizabeth Brown; I'd known of her as a flutist, but not as a composer. Music must drip from her finger tips; it all seems inspired in the way that Mozart's music is inspired, as if it simply flowed out of her. I have no idea how difficult it was for her to write these pieces, but they are so smoothly wrought that it sounds as if she simply served as the music's vessel. OK, I know that sounds very 19th-century, but it feels as if nothing had impeded its composition. Partly, I'm sure, that is because Ms Brown knows what she wants to do and has the technical means to do it. Fortunately, also, she has an ear for intriguing sounds, memorable melodies, and an ability to limn emotion musically. Everything on this disc is attractive, and it has an unmistakably personal sound that so many composers seem to lack. The music rarely rises above a mezzo-forte, and the commonest mood is a kind of gentle melancholy, a ruminative reflection, but there is also occasional drama, frequent wry good humor, abundant lyricism. There is a good bit of Asian influence--indeed in one piece, 'Acadia,' (so named because she wrote if while at Acadia National Park in Maine), she plays both flute and shakuhachi. Her music occasionally quotes, sometimes mercurially, sometimes obsessively, old familiar tunes (e.g. 'Au claire de la lune' in 'Liguria') that somehow fit right in to the overall sound-picture. One suspects that she has been influenced by the music of, say, Lou Harrison or Colin McPhee as well as good ol' Charlie Ives.Read more ›
