Jacob, Jeffrey - Reawakening - Spalding, Daniel

159 kr - Utgången

Composer and pianist Jeffrey Jacob returns to Navona Records with REAWAKENING, a collection of varied works for orchestra and chamber ensembles. Jacob’s lush, mystical style pervades the album, often blending his piano’s sound with orchestral arrangements to create rich musical imagery, as in The Loch Before Sunrise and A Mirror Upon the Waters. The title work is a composition for piano and orchestra, which was debuted on Ansonica Records' second Cuba-based album INTERSECTIONS. It’s one of the first pieces by an American composer to be recorded by the Cuban National Symphony in 50 years. Jacob found inspiration from Thomas Hardy’s poem of the same name, writing that Hardy’s “unforgettable images of the natural world as it struggles toward spring and rebirth were irresistible.” The Loch Before Sunrise and A Mirror Upon the Waters follow, both colorful works for piano and orchestra that explore imagery from different Alpine lakes. Music for Haiti for piccolo and strings contrasts these themes, evoking the sorrow, loss, hopefulness, and rebirth of Haiti following the devastation of its recent earthquake. Remembrance of Things Past, another piece inspired by literature, takes its title from a Shakespearean sonnet. It features a soloist showcase for oboe, as well as a meditative chaconne. Jacob’s Sonata for Cello and Piano has two remarkable contrasting movements, opposing the gentle opening “Lullaby” with a faster, more anxious movement with sweeping melodic lines. The album closes with a work for solo piano Rewakening, recalling the opening piece and bringing the album full circle. Jeffery Jacob, a pianist and composer, has had his works performed worldwide by several high-profile ensembles. Notable premieres include his Symphony: Winter Lightning by Raymond Leppard and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Sleeping at Last by the Gregg Smith Singers, Persistence of Memory by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, and his first two piano concertos by the Moscow and St. Petersburg Symphonies, with himself as soloist. One of the first American composed pieces to be recorded by the Cuban National Symphony in five decades, REAWAKENING’s title track finds Jacob seizing the opportunity to explore themes of rebirth which coincide with the renewed relationship between the two nations. Warsaw Music Journal described Jacob as “unquestionably one of the greatest performers of 20th-century music,” while the New York Times declared him an “artist of intense concentration and conviction.” He was recently named “Musician of the Year” by the International New Music Consortium at New York University. Jacob’s work as a composer, pianist and educator recently earned him an Artist of the Year Award from the International New Music Consortium at New York University.
