Cedille on sale

My idea for this disc is to share some of the best and most varied current literature for voice and piano. The composers represented here include well-recognized and less familiar names, all of whom are living. They take their inspiration from poems and prose both ancient and modern, exotic and mundane. They rework time-honored musical forms and develop new ones. Their compositional methods range from simple to virtuosic. Several works are strongly jazz-inflected, one is raga-inflected, one is a tango, another features a blues pattern. Neo-classicism, post-romanticism, and tone row construction are included among the compositional methods.
