Album Title: Davidovsky/ Korf/ Wright 
Cat. No.: 80383
Genre: Classical
Description: Riverside Symphony/George Rothman; Fred Sherry, cello
Mario Davidovsky was a founding member of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. His compositions apply classical compositional form to electronically generated sounds. His Divertimento is rich and subtle, and might even be described as impressionistic. Maurice Wright’s Night Scenes, although not program music per se, is loosely inspired by nocturnal imagery, from the fantastical turn the imagination takes in the late hours. It is alternately agitated and full of dreamy string harmonics. Anthony Korf’s Symphony No. 2 (Blue Note) has a walking bass line that propels the orchestra through difficult rhythms. The harmonic language is unpredictable and varied, at times a simple tonal one, at others unapologetically dissonant, contingent upon the character of what is being developed. The overall mood, as the title might indicate, is slightly melancholic, though tinged with different shades of blue.
