Just Opened July 26 - Around the World


"Around the World" is our theme on Just Opened today as our music takes inspiration from many cultures and countries.

My Delight of the Week!
Just as Dvorak and Bartok and other Romantic era composers mined the folk music of their beloved home countries for melodic inspiration, and then spun it through chamber and orchestral music constructions, Overmeire takes indigenous instruments and soundscapes from Cambodia, Burma, Vietnam and constructs totally accessible sound worlds of orchestral music.  This CD has all ready been featured on NPR and is getting a lot of attention internationally.  Chris Ranck says, "International Music Done Right!"
