Product Description

In Eleanors Words: Music of Stacy Garrop offers world-premiere recordings of three works by a rising composer who . . . excites the enthusiasm of performers and audiences alike (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). A Chicago-based composer with a blossoming career, Garrop (b. 1969) has a sharp ear for instrumental color and narrative form: She can tell a story (Detroit Free Press). Writings by the revered American stateswoman and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt are the inspiration for Garrops In Eleanors Words (2006). Scored for mezzo-soprano and piano, the piece illuminates excerpts from six of the former first ladys syndicated newspaper columns addressing world peace, human rights, and personal experiences. Artists are mezzo-soprano Buffy Baggott and pianist Kuang-Hao Huang. Silver Dagger (2009) for violin, cello, and piano springs from an Appalachian folk song about star-crossed lovers. Garrop skillfully incorporates melodies from three traditional versions of the song in this new work, performed by the Lincoln Trio. Garrops much-anticipated String Quartet No. 3, Gaia (2008), named for the Greek goddess of the Earth and performed by the Biava Quartet, takes listeners on an engrossing journey from chaos, creation, and abundance to cataclysm and renewal. Garrops String Quartet No. 2, Demons and Angels, drew praise from, among others, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Few composers . . . can develop musical ideas as convincingly as Garrop does here.

Chicago's Ives 4 Mar 2011
By Matthew Fields - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is solid, strong music, firmly in the American tradition of Ives and Cowell, excellently performed. A piano trio, an Ives-like song cycle, and and a string quartet reminiscent of Ruth Crawford and Bela Bartok fill this CD with expressive phrases.
