PostClassical Ensemble celebrates Lou Harrison with a new Naxos recording that is stellar. Harrison was born 100 years ago and it is delightful to have some fresh releases and performances. Tim Fain is the main featured soloist, in Harrison’s Violin Concerto and Grand Duo. Pianist Michael Boriskin (of Copland House) collaborates brilliantly in the gamelan-esque 1988 work with Fain.
WBAA’s John Clare spoke with the leader of PostClassical Ensemble, Angel Gil-Ordóñez about the new disc.
