Aleksandra Vrebalov (b.1970): The Sea Ranch Songs / Kronos Quartet

Album Summary

>Vrebalov, Aleksandra : The Sea Ranch Songs, for string quartet
Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Aleksandra Vrebalov's The Sea Ranch Songs was commissioned for the Kronos Quartet by the community of The Sea Ranch in celebration of the California retreat's fiftieth birthday. The music does a magnificent job of connecting with the nature, spirit, and architecture of this magical landscape. This music is more like a multimedia work. The music features rarely documented sounds from the Northern California coastal community and it's nature. The work is paired with a cinematic exploration on a bonus DVD directed by videographer Andrew Lyndon. "The Sea Ranch idea on a global scale might be utopian, but through music, we praise its beauty and affirm its urgent relevance in our wounded world, so much in need of healing." (Aleksandra Vrebalov) Kronos Quartet consists of violinists David Harrington and John Sherba, violist Hank Dutt, and cellist Sunny Yang.
