We had a customer review on Amazon.com for the Concord Chamber Music release that had some great parts we just had to share!
“I will start this off by saying please read the accompanying booklet. It provides insight into the Concord Chamber Music Society and the composers Brubeck, Gandolfi, and Foss. Additionally the back cover picture has a stunning picture of the Mechanics Hall venue. I would love to have a 16×20 of that. The acoustical charter of Mechanics Hall gave RR the perfect soundstage to do their typical sonic magic show. The small ensemble has been superbly recorded in precise detail. My favorite from this CD is Gandolfi’s A Farewell To Old Friends. You don’t have to concentrate to hear the unique clarinet offering.”
Brubeck, Gandolfi and Foss
The prestigious Concord Chamber Music Society, featuring musicians of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, mark their debut on Reference Recordings with two premiere recordings. These new works by Chris Brubeck and Michael Gandolfi, two of America’s most-commissioned composers, are both accessible and adventurous. Rounding out the program, the Lukas Foss duo for violin and piano, Central Park Reel, hints cheerfully at a kind of musical twin bill. “Central Park” suggests a scene in New York but “Reel” hints at a characteristic dance often accompanied by a bluegrass band. Grammy award winning engineer “Prof.” Keith Johnson did an outstanding job of recording this music in the superb natural acoustics of Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts.
