Album Review

Zeitgeist – “Here and Now” – [Innova/American Composers]

Cousin Mary   6/17/2011   A Library, CD

Minnesota chamber ensemble Zeitgeist (the word means the cultural climate of the times) is percussionists Heather Barringer and Patti Cudd, Pat O’Keefe on woodwinds, and pianist Shannon Wettstein. For their 30th anniversary and Minnesota’s 150th, they asked 30 composers to write musical pieces that are 150 seconds long. This album records those results.

Many moods – noisy to quiet, silly to serious, ominous to light hearted. Very well played, I especially liked the tracks with vibes. Enjoy the smorgasbord!
