WOLOSOFF, B.: Songs Without Words (Carpe Diem String Quartet)
‘Bruce Wolosoff’s music is beautiful, very musical, independent-minded stylistically,’ declares no less a luminary than William Bolcom. The eighteen Songs Without Words on this disc are true ‘genre busters’, amiably crossing musical borders between popular and classical music and walking the lines that divide them. Such eclecticism requires superbly laid-back compositional control, and demands equally accomplished and relaxed performance. ‘Imagine my newfound joy at the possibility of writing music that my friends might want to listen to for pleasure,’ Wolosoff declared on hearing the Carpe Diem String Quartet’s enthusiastically fun-filled interpretations.
