In Other Worlds

Schubert’s famously beloved art song is firmly grounded in the wide range of human emotion, and creates an intriguing contrast with the jazzy neoclassicism of Ravel. Trumpeter Brandon Ridenour’s “full-blooded, atmospheric arrangements” (The New York Times) of Vivaldi arias and Beatles tunes give way to a set of miniature musical meditations on everything from cats to celibacy. Finally, with one of the most delightful chamber works of the nineteenth century, Saint-Saëns pays harmonious homage to the Baroque era, filled with florid elegance and energetic explosions of color.
