Gulfstream: Larsen, Lieuwen, Schickele, Copland [Naxos 8.559692]

15.00

Chamber Music (American) - LARSEN, L. / LIEUWEN, P. / SCHICKELE, P. / COPLAND, A. (Gulfstream) (enhake)

Libby Larsen’s Rodeo Queen of Heaven takes its inspiration from religious iconography given a contemporary twist—a painting of a Madonna with gun—in a rhythmically vivacious tableau. Peter Lieuwen presents an aural portrait of the Gulfstream, fusing grace with melodic fragments in a nature depiction rich in depth. Peter Schickele’s Quartet is profuse in syncopation, jazz, folk music and a melancholy that only heightens the brilliance of the finale’s off-kilter dynamism. Copland’s Sextet began life as his Second Symphony but, pared down, proves utterly idiomatic, vital, melodically exciting and bracing.
