Early Early Kronos

AG

Not knowing the composer Johnson, I had no idea what to expect from this CD which precedes the rest of the band's recorded output by several years. As the previous reviewer noted, Kronos know how to get the most out of relatively simple material and they deliver a very entertaining performance of these short, earthy pieces. Pop music fans should find this to be a very suitable introduction to the group.

I love the intimacy

I have seen these guys perform once and they manage to create such an unusual atmosphere with relatively simple compositions. Because of their intensity and craftmanship, you constantly want to hear more. Each piece has its unique signature. The fusion of classical and modern chamber musicis complete.

Who Is…Marques Toliver

By Barry Walters, Contributor

If Marques Toliver comes across a bit brash, it's because there's little precedent for him.

On his stunning London-recorded Bella Union debut album Land of CanAan, Toliver combines literary and historical influences — among them, Frederick Douglass and James Baldwin — with music that ably blends an unlikely combination of Bach,… more »

Harrington founded the polymorphous string quartet in 1973 and nearly 40 years later, it is still going strong, even if its members have evolved from revolutionary upstarts to elders of the field. Harrington calls himself "a collector of musical experiences," and by now his ample storerooms contain Medieval polyphony,… more »

Music of Central Asia

By Richard Gehr, Contributor

The three fascinating new albums on the Smithsonian Folkways imprint that are devoted to the Music of Central Asia (volumes seven, eight and nine in an ongoing series, for those keeping score) might have been titled "Music of the 'Stans." The compilations range from the musics of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan, into India, and then around the world to expatriate communities in New York and California. One album sets poetry composed hundreds of years… more »
