Tod Machover: ...but not simpler...
BRIDGE 9346


$ 14.99

This collection of Tod Machover's music focuses on chamber and orchestral music composed during the last decade, both with and without electronic enhancement. Machover's music is a fascinating blend of expressive and lyrical melody combined with a sophisticated ear for textural complexity. The resulting music is always a treat for the ears- colorful, vibrant, and rhythmically propulsive. The largest composition on this disc is the piano concerto Jeux Deux, scored for large orchestra (the work was commissioned and first performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra), with the soloist performing on a "hyperpiano"- a concert grand piano which interacts with sensors and computer programs in order to expand its technical possibilities. Machover produces cutting-edge music with a heart!
