POLARITIES, an album of new presentations in classical music, expresses the emotions, feelings, and scenes associated with opposites. The works on the album, by four composers, range from a piece for wind ensemble and the Chinese gaohu, to a piano sonata, a chamber work, and works for orchestra. POLARITIES showcases the common focus of polar opposites and points of view in the works of four composers: Alex Freeman's piece Blueshift, based on an astronomical phenomenon; Chi-hin Leung's Afterimage: the Dreamy Butterfly, which depicts an ancient Chinese tale by means of new classical music and contemporary instrumentation; Katherine Saxon's East of the Sun/West of the Moon takes us on a tour through a land of fantasy; Vox Dilecti Mei shows the range of emotion at the arrival of a lover; and Mathew Fuerst's Symphony which tells a story of unrequited love.
