Volodos is amazing. I hate him. His fingers move unbelievably fast. "Flight of the Bumblebee"--incredible. My favorite song is "Turkish Rondo" by Mozart.

A Fine Pianist
Arcadi Volodos must surely be a pianists pianist. He seemingly can do nothing wrong: the emotion of the pieces is beautifully conveyed, the phrasing is spot-on, and technically he has no peer.

A good selection
A great range of different virtuoso transcriptions - some (in)famous ones, and some not-so-well known ones. The Hungarian Rhapsody is an amazing performance, and it's worth buying the CD just for the Carmen Variations (origionally by Horowitz) and the Mozart - Rondo Alla Turka Transcription, which is an amazing whirl of notes! A great price too!

A Californian (San Diego) having traveled to the Pacific Rim frequently, Christopher Adler is perhaps one of the more unique modern composers of the 21st century. He combines traditional folk music of Thailand and Laos with the post-John Cage contemporary minimalist school. The result is a stunning music sporting unique instrumentation, timbres and tones that reflect an affinity for electronic music, and an acoustic esthetic that is sonorous, at times shimmering, and definitely spiritual. Adler plays two pieces on the khaen, an internal reed instrument with 16 bamboo pipes mounted in a wooden windchest, native to the Lao culture of Laos and northeastern Thailand. Its sound assimilates a harmonica with overtones of a drone similar to bagpipes, yet it retains a multi-harmonic resonance that might be the cousin of the ba-hu or forefather of the melodica or harmonium. "The Wind Blows Inside" is church-like and meditational but minimalist and not unlike Terry Riley's "Persian Surgery Dervishes." The title track, recorded five months after 9/11, seems naturally somber, at times inquisitive, sighing and breathing deeply. "Three Lai" adds violin and viola and displays a definite traditional dance quality before waxing romantic, then ending in a bouncy canon. The influence of Lou Harrison's gamelan experiments is quite evident during the outstanding "Signals Intelligence" played by the Red Fish Blue Fish percussion sextet. A very regimented but interactive piece, it incorporates the shifting rhythms, moods, and accents so typical of Asian music, with a booming bass drum or 7/8 rhythm tossed in. The magnum opus "Pan-Lom" is a musical essay on architecture that Adler offered for his PhD dissertation at Duke University. Meaning "to sculpt the wind," the live in studio (no overdubs) 23-minute piece with a 13-piece acoustic band and samples added has Adler on Thai xylophone, again quite regimented but more spectral and varied in emotional content, ranging from direct and historical to serene, dancing, and joyous, then calming. A violin solo by Eric Pritchard is placed in the middle on a composition also quite similar to what Lou Harrison might do with these exotic and standard instrumental combinations. It is a triumphant, regal, and proud world music statement, unique unto itself, and should be in the collection of all interested in any Indo-jazz or ethnic fusion events of recent documentation. ~ Michael G.
