BLUE PACIFIC by Michael Torke
Piano Trio No. 1 “Nicky’s Trio”, III. Mobile by Carter Pann
In a program that explores the blurred boundary between popular culture and contemporary art music, Aperio's musicians capture the spirit of American rock and roll, popular song, jazz, and minimalism in works by Michael Torke, John Mackey, Carter Pann, D.J. Sparr and Radiohead. This collection of recent chamber music represents a younger vanguard of composers whose music speaks to a broad audience. Exuberant and colorful, this is music that blazes a new path in contemporary music and seduces the audience to follow.
