About this Recording

RANJBARAN, B.: Awakening / Elegies / Moto Perpetuo / 6 Caprices / String Quartet No. 1 (Sejong)

The music of Iranian-born, American-based composer Behzad Ranjbaran has been praised as ‘noble and brilliantly conceived’ (American Music Guide). Awakening commemorates the triumph of peace over war. Moto Perpetuo combines moments of joy, humor and lyricism, ending with fearless energy. Elegy for Strings is reflective of life’s cycle. Elegy for Cello and Strings is based on the second movement of his Cello Concerto. The Six Caprices explore a variety of violin techniques and textures, while the String Quartet reflects on the nature of life, dreams and the subconscious, and rituals and ceremonies.
