BOND, V.: Instruments of Revelation / Frescoes and Ash / Leopold Bloom's Homecoming / Binary (R. Müller, Jenny Lin, Vinokur, Chicago Pro Musica)

Victoria Bond is a distinguished force in contemporary music. She is known for her melodic and dramatic flair, and her orchestral works, chamber pieces and operas have been lauded by The New York Times as “powerful, stylistically varied and technically demanding.” This collection of world premiere recordings by GRAMMY®Award-winning ensemble Chicago Pro Musica provides an essential overview of Bond’s multi-faceted inventiveness—from a musical interpretation of tarot cards in Instruments of Revelation, to descriptive and dramatic images of the tragic city of Pompeii in Frescoes and Ash. Leopold Bloom’s Homecoming expresses in music what is left to our imagination in James Joyce’s Ulysses, and the mathematics of Binary turn the digits 0 and 1 into variations on a Brazilian samba.
