Keith Kramer composer

EMERGE is a two-disc album featuring the works of Boston-based composer Keith Kramer. Kramer’s constant search for new modes of expression through music nestles itself into his music, and each piece represents another discovery in his search. His exploratory journey has helped him create a prolific catalog of music, ranging from the subtle and restrained to the ferocious and demanding.

This double album features instrumental, electronic, chamber, and orchestral works and includes performances by Après, the Capitol Hill Chamber Players, the Sonora Ensemble, the Beyond Sonic Boundaries Orchestra, the Mariner String Quartet, the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra under conductor Kirk Trevor, and many more.
