Cellist Matt Haimovitz & pianist Christopher O'Riley have made one of year's true event recordings with Shuffle.Play.Listen, which blurs the often artificial, outmoded boundaries that divide classical and popular music. Released by Oxingale Records as a double-album CD set, Shuffle.Play.Listen sees the groundbreaking, Grammy-nominated Haimovitz team with O'Riley (host of the popular NPR and PBS weekly program "From the Top") to juxtapose 20th-century classics by Stravinsky, Janacek, Martinu, Piazzolla and Bernard Hermann with versions of art-rock songs by the likes of Radiohead and Arcade Fire and the jazz-rock of John McLaughlin, in boldly imaginative cello-piano arrangements by O'Riley. Prior to its physical CD release, Shuffle.Play.Listen will be available exclusively via Amazon's MP3 site on Sept. 1, with the full digital album offered at a reduced price and a free track offered for preview the Prelude from Hermann's Vertigo suite.
