    Parma Recordings
    (USA) / May 25, 2014

    New releases:

  • Svjetlana Bukvich – “Evolution”
  • Anne Vanschothorst – “Ek Is Eik”
  • Juan Alamo – “Marimjazzia”
  • John Beall – “Appalachian Inspiration”
  • Marie Nelson Bennett – “Orpheus Lex”
  • Alexandra Ottaway – “Tetrahedron Dreams”

    “Evolution” :
    “Evolution” , the debut release from composer and performer Svjetlana Bukvich on Big Round Records, showcases six original electro-acoustic compositions that incorporate elements of prog-rock, avant-garde, experimental, jazz and world music. Integrating cutting-edge technology with tuning of her own design and her deep classical roots, Bukvich's hybrid sound tells stories of love, loss, trial and triumph in a bold yet sensuous style, breaking boundaries every step of the way.

    “Ek Is Eik” :
    “Ek Is Eik” , the debut Big Round Records release for critically acclaimed Dutch composer and harpist Anne Vanschothorst, features works for contemporary classical harp with a distinctly jazz twist. By way of solo harp pairing with instruments such as the trumpet, viola da gamba, percussion, and bass, Vanschothorst's music mirrors her passion for experimentation and eclecticism. EK IS EIK takes listeners on a journey of thoughts and memories, and appeals to the profound within the listener's imagination, emotion, truth, and beauty.

    “Marimjazzia” :
    With a variety of musical flavors pulled from composers spanning Keiko Abe to Bach to Bill Evans, “Marimjazzia”, composer and marimbist Juan Alamo's debut album on Big Round Records delivers a satisfying plate of music for the soul. Along with arrangements of two jazz standards, Waltz for Debby and Afro Blues, the album features original compositions for marimba and percussion ensemble by the composer.

    “Appalachian Inspiration” :
    Illustrating the impact of Appalachian folk music on his often unconventional yet appealingly direct style, “Appalachian Inspiration”, composer John Beall's debut album on Ravello Records, features three piano and string pieces that display a strong, expressive grasp of folk tunes and traditional classical techniques

    “Orpheus Lex” :
    “Orpheus Lex” is composer Marie Nelson Bennett and librettist David Kranes' modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Setting Orpheus as a popular folk singer retired in a mountain retreat in Idaho, Bennett -- a protege of Paul Hindemith and a milestone in her field -- uses her influences and years of experience to bring the tale to life. Alongside Kranes' libretto, the work spins the classic tale into one of remembrance and looking back into time with a poignant twist.

    “Tetrahedron Dreams” :
    Drawing from a diverse set of genres and stylistic sources including atonal, folk, chant, dance, and more, Alexandra Ottaway's solo Navona Records debut “Tetrahedron Dreams” presents a singular and striking listening experience. Idiosyncratic yet focused in its approach and execution, the Merlin Etudes utilizes Ottaway's application of serial-atonal technique, taking its twelve-tone row from Messiaen's flute and piano piece Le Merle Noir.
