POLARITIES vol 2
WORKS FOR ORCHESTRA AND LARGE ENSEMBLE
From yin and yang to public debate, much in the world revolves around opposing forces. POLARITIES VOL. 2, an album of new presentations in classical music, documents the intricacies of these forces, expressing the emotions, sensations, and scenes associated with the extreme ends of conversation and change.
Like a series of magnets, the album’s six works are united in lockstep by the Moravian Philharmonic, Janáček Philharmonic, and Zagreb Festival Orchestras’ deft ability to unite pieces in different styles: Margaret Brandman’s dynamic Spirit Visions, a journey through mystic moods that ends in elation; Beth Mehocic’s Tango Concerto, an elaborate dance between piano and accordion/bandoneon; Larry Wallach’s Species of Motion, a transforming and pulsing work of shifting imagery; Kamala Sankaram’s 91919, a palindromic work that reverses at its sonic center; Mel Mobley’s Labored Breathing, an illustration of the contrast between breaths of life and death; and Brian Latchem’s Suffolk Variations for Viola and Strings, a conversational back-and-forth between forms.
