CROSS CONNECTION features the works of Henry Wolking and James Scott Balentine, two composers whose works perfectly complement each other through musical studies of crossed paths and human togetherness. Both composers’s works consider the meaning of life, love, and music, and the relationship between each: Gone Playin’, a spirited musical riff on epitaphs and their connection of life and death; The Old Gypsy, a Hungarian-influenced piece for string quartet that reflects on the perpetuity of musical themes and influences; and Dùn Èideann Blogh, a recollection of times past with friends and family.
CROSS CONNECTION features performances by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra and Moravian Philharmonic String Players (Petr Vronskÿ, conductor), clarinetist Robert Walzel, and bassoonist Eric Wolf Stomberg.
