Just Opened - Feb. 21, 2014

We interspersed three new releases with some major orchestral works from our library today.  These are ... Just Opened!

STRAVINSKY
Solo Piano Works
Jenny Lin, piano
Steinway & Sons 33028
ISBN# 0 34062 300028 0
Jenny Lin's Official Website
 Jenny Lin never fails to put together exciting musical ideas.  Her magnificent playing is matched by imaginative programming that brings a big punch to her releases.  After last year's release of incredibly accessible virtuoso arrangements of broadway and film melodies, this one is not destined to fly off the shelves as quickly, but is meritorious.  A collection of piano works (and transciptions of orchestral works for piano, by Igor Stravinsky.



ARC DUO
New Works for Flute and Guitar
Heather Holden, flute
Bradley Colton, guitar
ACD-71275
ISBN# 7 8786-71275-2 0
The Arc Duo's Official Website
The Arc Duo is appearing here at Salisbury Univeristy next week as part of the 6th annual Guitar Festival.  Last month we opened up their CD with folk tunes and very accessible works.  Today's CD has all modern works, some more challenging.  Several works would appeal to the "new age" listener, evoking the flow of water.  For more information on the annual guitar festival, go to

CONSTANT CONNECTIONS
Kevin Gebo, trumpet
Gebeaux Records
ISBN# 8 84501 93267 7
Keving Gebo's Official Website
My Delight of the Week!  A true "crossover" CD that would appeal to many different listening tastes, Gebo joins a variety of musicians to create a truly mixed offering.  Some impressive modern works, but mostly a mix of traditional works (Amazing Grace & America the Beautiful), and well-known favorites in new arrangements.


Thanks to our S.U. practicum Jessica Reeves for her help pulling the blog information together.
