In Search of Lost Beauty…
“If this music transports you into a haunting, mysterious dream world, don’t worry about it – it’s only doing its job.”
– Ingram Marshall
This CD presents the premiere recording of Žibuoklė Martinaitytė’s hauntingly immersive, 70-minute In Search of Lost Beauty… Martinaitytė comments:
“In Search of Lost Beauty... is a sequence of audiovisual novellas on the elusive subject of beauty – an attempt to recreate the experience in which time is slowed down in order to transport us into an alternate dimension where the commonly apprehended reality is inverted into the otherworldly mystique of reflections and shadows.”
Ingram Marshall concludes, “Martinaitytė has created a world of hidden beauty in a bridge-like form that begs you to enter.”
Music for Large Ensemble
Two major compositions, from the acclaimed composer and electric guitar virtuoso Tim Brady, receive their premiere recordings on this CD. One is the driving, high-energy Désir: concerto for electric guitar and large chamber ensemble, and the other is the intensely harrowing, yet poignant, Eight Songs about: Symphony #7.
Allan Kozinn writes:
"As a composer, Brady is entirely of his time, which is to say, eclectically rooted in the full range of modern styles, from neo-Romanticism to experimentalism and Minimalism [as well as] art-rock."
