KLEEMATION AND OTHER WORKS is the debut Navona release from Rockport-based composer Elizabeth Vercoe, featuring six of the composer's works for small ensemble and solo instruments. The title piece, Kleemation for flute and piano, draws its inspiration from five drawings by Swiss artist Paul Klee. Through her expertly crafted music, Vercoe effectively captures the moods and styles of the visual elements from which she works, ranging from wry humor to anxiety about the state of our world.

Also included on this album are Vercoe's Fantasy, Irreveries from Sappho, Herstory II: Thirteen Japanese Lyrics, To Music, and Despite our differences #1, a deft sampling of her compositional output and proof-of-concept of her competence with various forms and configurations.
