March indicates the completion of winter, as spring enters the scene and the songs of birds are mingled with the sounds of new music. Today, we introduce a collection of rhapsodies that span three continents, live performances of stunning orchestral works by a PARMA veteran, and much more.
MARCH RELEASES OUT NOW
Mark John McEncroe
With LIVE IN OSTRAVA, Australian composer and Navona veteran Mark John McEncroe once more serves up an hour of atmospheric orchestral music – demonstrating with great vigor that it is possible to set a counterpoint to musical academia even as a late vocation.
Music lovers who have ever found themselves wishing that contemporary classical music would sound more aesthetic, more energetic, or more dramatic are in for a treat with Croatian composer Matej Meštrović’s 3 RHAPSODIES, a grand, exuberant celebration of the great Slavic orchestral tradition – and a breathtaking demonstration of its astounding versatility.
Mark Dal Porto
PEACE, NATURE & RENEWAL is more than just a creative portrait of composer Mark Dal Porto’s unique compositional mind. It compellingly demonstrates the powerful inspiration that both Nature and poetry can bring to music, from intimate chamber settings to grand, vast choral and orchestral compositions.
Michael G. Cunningham; Rain Worthington; Ssu-Yu Huang; Bruce Reiprich; Beth Mehocic
Navona Records teams up with the esteemed Croatian Chamber Orchestra for the contemplative BENEATH THE TIDE, a collection of five compositions that cover the many experiences within the spectrum of human emotions.
