KROUSE, I.: Nocturnes / Invocation (Rivera, Chernov, Pogossian, Sutre, R. O'Neill, Lysy, Hanulik, Maryanne Kim)

Ian Krouse has been acclaimed by Gramophone as “one of the most communicative and intriguing” of today’s composers, his style drawing on historical and traditional influences as well as being innovative and modern. With references to Beethoven and Schubert, metaphors of darkness and light are conveyed with powerful emotion in Nocturnes, which sets four texts by well-known Armenian poets to form an odyssey through the mind of a man at mid-life. With profound sadness at its heart, Invocation explores the intangibility of love, contrasting atonality and tonality to express emotional outpourings that ultimately remain ephemeral and elusive.
