Nicholas Cords - Recursions (CD)
Release Date: 03/12/13
In A Circle Records presents a solo debut from Brooklyn Rider and Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble violist Nicholas Cords
Recursions uses the natural phenomenon of self-similar repetition as a platform to examine the viola's solo repertoire celebrating music that thrives on the repetition of cells in many guises. It begins and ends with passacaglias by two great composer-performers Biber and Hindemith, encompassing works by Hovhaness, Rubbra, Stravinsky, a traditional Irish air and Cord's debut opus, Five Migrations.
