Michael Byron: In the Village of Hope, for harp / Tasha Smith Godínez, harp

Album Summary

>Byron, Michael [Composer] : In the Village of Hope, for harp
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This wonderfully restless, virtuosic harp solo, performed by Tasha Smith Godínez, is unlike anything else in the solo harp repertoire. The composer writes: "This is a piece of unabashed virtuosity. Its complex temporal structure and intricate counterpoint vie for the listener's attention ... With a sound reminiscent of wind chimes ... individual notes diverging and merging to form a delicate fabric of sound." Byron is a long-time associate of the Cold Blue label; his music has appeared on four of the label's previous CDs. In the Village of Hope is a specially priced 23-minute CD EP.

Byron creates maximalist effect out of minimalist means.
