Just like that, late summer has arrived, Labor Day is poking its head over the horizon, and those final warm beach days are calling. Combine that with some bold new music from Navona and Ravello Records, and your perfect August is set.
AUGUST RELEASES OUT NOW
In the triumphant THEN ELEPHANT SPEAKS, composer Bill Whitley tells stories of strength and power through acoustic and electric sound. He leads listeners on a journey through melancholic original compositions, atmospheric remixes, the cycles of discovery, and an eventual sense of return.
Jan Järvlepp; Ferdinando DeSena; David MacDonald; Craig Peaslee; Kenneth A. Kuhn; Arcadian Winds
The title of Navona Records’ WINDSWEPT refers to more than just the wind quintet whose sounds make up the musical landscape of this compilation. It reflects the way the listener is consumed by the stories of each composition and left moved by the power of each.
Alla Elana Cohen
Russian-born emigrant composer and pianist Alla Cohen presents her monumental double album QUAESTIONES ET RESPONSA. Her latest Ravello Records release features chamber music works with highly original set-ups and a truly unique musical language.
