Product Description

Amazon.com

Lou Harrison isn't your typical New Music composer. For starters, he's remarkably consistent, churning out impressive compositions over several decades that vary in style, but are never inaccessible. His music is richly melodic, percussive, culture-melding, and, more often than not, beautiful. This description applies to Rhymes with Silver, a commission Harrison wrote for the Mark Morris Dance Group. The highlights here are the rich lyrical passages performed by cellist Joan Jeanrenaud (formerly of the Kronos Quartet), which are contemplative but also playful. Joining the cello are parts for violin, viola, piano, vibraphone, and percussion. Though this sounds like a twist on a typical chamber music quintet, there's little typical in this work's 12 movements. From the driving rhythms of "Gigue & Musette" to the sentimental "Romantic Waltz" to the pounding chords of "Fox Trot," this CD is a joy to listen to--humorous, exotic, and inquisitive. --Jason Verlinde

Format: Audio CD
Lou Harrison, who just turned 84 years old, continues to compose music filled with sensual colors and melodies, while keeping a sense of humor about things. (The Foxtrot on this CD is a wacky number filled with tone-clusters.) Silver happens to be the composer's middle name, and not an easy thing to rhyme, but it seems at times that Lou can do anything. Lou clearly deseres the title of Grand Man of American Music (who else is still around that can claim to have worked with Charles Ives, collaborated with John Cage, and was writing "World Music" in the 1940s?). The music of Lou Harrison is a delight for the ear and the heart, as this CD easily demonstrates. Cellist Joan Jeanrenaud gives a bang-up performance here.

An amazing combination of classical composing and contemporary feeling. The smooth but dramatic strings are transportive.
