The Cave Of Wondrous Voice - Chamber Music and Songs of Mark Abel features David Shifrin, clarinet • Carol Rosenberger, piano • Hila Plitmann, soprano Fred Sherry, cello • Sabrina-Vivian Höpcker, violin Dominic Cheli, piano • Sarah Beck, English horn.
This album sings and dances, with Mark Abel's "colorful blend of styles that serve the emotional nature of each work to bracing and poignant effect" (Gramophone) and further clarifies why Abel is "one of the most interesting figures in American contemporary music" (Pizzicato). The program begins with Intuition's Dance, a combination of frolic and dreamy ruminations featuring the incomparable clarinetist David Shifrin and pianist Carol Rosenberger. (Together again for the first time since their memorable albums for Delos, recorded in 1984!)
David Shifrin sat down with 88.1WMBR: Boston - The New Edge host, Ken Field for conversation about the new recording and the clarinetist's impressive career. Listen to the attached conversation.
