Through his Argentinean tango-infused classical works, composer Alejandro Rutty has carved an original, unique niche in classical music, blending tango, electronic, and classical elements into a cohesive whole. On the multifarious THE CONSCIOUS SLEEPWALKER, his first album on Navona Records, Rutty presents works for saxophone quartet and orchestra that explore concepts ranging from explorations of tango within pop culture of the future to half-dreams versus fictional reality. The album’s title piece has been received widespread critical acclaim, having been called “a terrific curtain-raiser” (Boston Globe) and “amusing…an immediate test of the ensemble’s mettle” (New York Times). Through acclaim for his music, receipt of a grant through the Copland Fund, and his impeccable ability to blend, mash, and transform genre, Rutty is a worth contender as a leading experimenter of the 21st century.
