Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This new album from the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra showcases Igor Stravinsky's ragtime- and jazz-influenced compositions: wonderful rhythms and harmonies, contemporary yet tuneful, forceful but not harsh. This top-flight ensemble is clearly in it's element here, and they manage to find musical turns and subtle underscorings that give them an edge even over the composer's own interpretations on Columbia.
