About 100 years ago, classical music made a jagged turn away from the harmonic structures that had comprised its underpinnings for several centuries. This departure was early-on dubbed atonalism, and opposed the functional harmony that prevailed during the great musical flourishing of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Composer Sparky Davis, who takes a "modern, not modernistic" approach to writing his music, continues this forward movement, expanding the vocabulary of music to include non-traditional elements and adding to the functional uses of long-established note combinations. THE MUSIC OF SPARKY DAVIS, a full album of Davis' works, features three of his works performed by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra (Vít Micka, Petr Vronský, conductors) and pianist Karolina Rojahn.
