ALBERT, S.: In Concordiam / TreeStone (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Stephen Albert is counted as one of the most accomplished pioneers of ‘The New Romanticism’: a generation of composers seeking to reclaim some of the emotional expression lost through the rigors of intellectual Modernism in music. Inspired by James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, TreeStone is a moving exploration of the tragic legend of Tristan and Iseult. In Concordiam reveals the range and complexity of Albert’s style in uniting angular dissonance with mellifluous harmonies. Albert worked closely with the Seattle Symphony on this work, revising it during his three year tenure as composer-in-residence. Albert’s Symphony No 1 RiverRun’ is available on Naxos 8.559257.
