Notes & Reviews:

The third release in the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project, Parallel Tones takes two iconic works both united by New York. Strauss's Sinfonia Domestica - debuted at Carnegie Hall and featuring four saxophones in what was the composer's idea of the 'American sound' - and Ellington's Harlem, a big band piece very much inspired by Strauss's tone poems. These two 'parallel tones' - one going from Europe to America and one from Ameri-ca back in time to Europe - morph 19th century European musical language with that of the American 20th century, crossing paths in New York.
