Thelema Trio – “Neither From Nor Towards” – [Innova/American Composers]
The members of the trio met at Belgium???s Royal Conservatoire of Music and became interested in playing in and encouraging compositions for the very unique combination of piano, clarinet, and saxophone. This CD features composers from Peru, Argentina and the United States – there is a variety of sounds but overall it is elegant and graceful, at times ominous or melancholy, and often playful. The very skilled playing has vibrant tone, both for the reeds and the piano.
Thelema Trio’s website has lots of information, including LINKS to composers’ websites.
PGM: HyeKyung Lee is female, the other composers are male.
