WRUV Radio Reviews Brubeck/Gandolfi/Foss

Just wanted to share a quick review from the Burlington, Vermont radio station WRUV. You'll notice the part that made us smile at the very end.

Concord Chamber Music Society
review by Laima

"Varied and interesting works by Chris Brubeck (son of Dave), Lukas Foss and Michael Gandolfi. Brubeck’s pieces are jazz inflected, Foss’ as the title suggests (Central Park Reel) is bluegrassy, and Gandolfi’s are abstract and lyrical. Play all!"

Brubeck, Gandolfi and Foss

The prestigious Concord Chamber Music Society, featuring musicians of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, mark their debut on Reference Recordings with two premiere recordings. These new works by Chris Brubeck and Michael Gandolfi, two of America's most-commissioned composers, are both accessible and adventurous. Rounding out the program, the Lukas Foss duo for violin and piano, Central Park Reel, hints cheerfully at a kind of musical twin bill. "Central Park" suggests a scene in New York but "Reel" hints at a characteristic dance often accompanied by a bluegrass band. Grammy award winning engineer "Prof." Keith Johnson did an outstanding job of recording this music in the superb natural acoustics of Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts.
