Donald Crockett: Blue Earth; Wedge; Viola Concerto / Kate Vincent, viola; BMOP, Gill Rose

Notes & Reviews:

BMOP/sound brings a breath of sand, surf, and sun to its latest release: three orchestral works by LA-based, bi-coastal collaborator, composer Donald Crockett. The title work, Blue Earth, is a "sinfonia concertante" that contrasts the delicacy of a small group of soloists with full orchestral forces. Blue Earth takes its inspiration from the interlocking ecosystems of our biosphere, modeling its structure and patterns after the migratory rhythms of birds, the surging of waves, and the inevitable cycle of organic rebirth. Also on the disc is Wedge, an energetic opener that channels the powerful surf of Newport Beach, and the Viola Concerto, written for the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and violist Kate Vincent, whose rich, lyrical sound is a highlight of the recording.
