Pianist Elina Christova plays new music by Scott Hiltzik on Tributaries. Melodic & Intelligent, 'Tributaries' integrates the Classical Compositional Tradition with Jazz & World Elements. "Scott Hiltzik's music is gorgeous, unapologetically so", composer Daniel Felsenfeld comments. "The solo piano music on this disc lives in the vivid sonic worlds of Chopin crossed with Ravel, the virtuosity of Liszt by way of Bill Evans, the flexible but fluid unpredictability of Brahms served up with the occasional hint of bite courtesy of Shostakovich or Prokofiev. Here in the post-atonal world composers are often made to question and doubt their right to write moving music. And where contemporary composers can be afraid, the music of Scott Hiltzik plays as unassailably hewn to this awesome tradition. It comes as a nice surprise-little torpor, no madness, just deftly made harmonic gestures supporting lilting, even sing-able, melodies."
