Lift: Chamber Music by Elena Ruehr (b. 1963) / Ethan Filner, Irina Muresanu, Jennifer Kloetzel & Sarah Bob

Notes & Reviews:

New York Times
Sumptuously scored and full of soaring melodies and piquant harmonies.

Award-winning composer Elena Ruehr's AVIE debut, Averno (AVR 2263), introduced three bold works for choir and orchestra. For her follow-up, Ruehr scales down to intimate solo and chamber works for strings and piano, all with references to older music: baroque elements infuse the Klein Suite, while the three movements of the jazz-tinged Second Violin Sonata are dedicated to her composition teacher William Bolcom, jazz teacher Eddie Russ, and Oscar Peterson, whom Ruehr met on New Year's Eve 1980. The Boston-based Ruehr, whose works are performed from coast to coast, teaches at MIT. Last year, she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.
