Fascinating music



Noise Of Our Time : Ken Vandermark, Nate Wooley, Sylvie Courvoisier and Tom Rainey

Quote
It was only during Ken Vandermark's residency at the Jazz club
The Stone in January 2016 that Vandermark found himself in the
same vicinity as Nate Wooley, Sylvie Courvoisier and Tom Rainey.
A year later they went into the studio with nine compositions –
three each by Courvoisier, Vandermark and Wooley.
These four musicians have well-documented, distinct personalities
which, in this context, results in performances full of surprises,
rich contrasts and shared responsibilities. The music sounds
thoughtful, but never over-wrought. They play by in tuition, yet
retain a vivid complexity. Their composing is transparent and
un-clichéd; their improvising provided with a remarkable coherence
and openness. And perhaps it is exactly this – a fresh collective
unity that keeps their respective personalities and idiosyncrasies
intact – that brings them success in this bold and collaborative
performance. Art needs to pique and renew your interest, take
you on inspiring and surprising journeys and sometimes even
confront your own biases. Creating, not reviving as a way to
evolve and to keep going forward in all directions.

Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night’s Dream [[Leinsdorf]





I like this version. The orchestral playing is taut and assertive delivering a wonderful and compelling listening experience which is very engaging and which has great presence. All of the vocal elements are well delivered.

Meanwhile, a world premiere at the opera museum Staatsoper in Vienna


How political should opera be? And, at a minimum, how good?
