Bryce Dessner - St Carolyn by the Sea / Rhapsody Top 10 Albums for April

Bookmark and Share

Orchestral pieces by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood (Suite from There Will Be Blood) and The National's Bryce Dessner ("St. Carolyn By the Sea") join Rhapsody's list of Top 10 Albums for April. Dessner presents three pieces of modern classical music here, written from the perspective of a rock musician who is keenly aware of the raw emotional impact music – any music – can have on an audience. He draws on elements from Baroque and folk music, late Romanticism and modernism, minimalist music and the blues, among others, as well as referencing the work of such legendary figures as John Fahey, La Monte Young, Béla Bartók, Glenn Branca, Benjamin Britten, Morton Feldman, Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Despite this broad spectrum of influences, his voice remains individual and distinct.
