The PARMA Album of the Day: APPALACHIAN INSPIRATION

Composer John Beall released his debut Ravello Records album APPALACHIAN INSPIRATION in 2014. The album illustrates the impact of Appalachian folk music on his often unconventional yet appealingly direct style, featuring three piano and string pieces that display a strong, expressive grasp of folk tunes and traditional classical techniques. Gramophone says, “Here three profoundly conservative works written over a 10-year span beginning in 1999, demonstrate not only the composer’s authentic embrace of cultural influences but also his keen ear from string-writing.”
