Blue Heron - Corpus Christi Church
February 10, 2019 - New York

Director Scott Metcalfe loves big, comprehensive projects. He and Boston's much-praised Blue Heron have released five CDs of music from the Peterhouse Partbooks, significant because some of the parts had been missing for years, rendering entire works unperformable. Thanks to careful scholarship, we'll hear pieces in premiere by Hugh Aston and Arthur Chamberlayne alongside music of Fayrfax and Taverner. Post-concert Q and A "I cannot recommend this superb CD [Vol. 2 of the Peterhouse series] highly enough—it is the sort of recording to listen to in awe at the sustained and unerring skill of the performers and the burgeoning brilliance of the composers… and to shed a quiet tear for the untold treasures that have been lost."

The Horszowski Trio - 92Y
February 15, 2019 - Upper East Side

The Horszowski Trio makes its 92Y debut with two touchstones of the trio repertoire and a rare performance of a modern American work. Robert Schumann's hyper-romantic piano trio retains its ability to leave audiences breathless even over 150 years after its composition, and The Horszowski Trio brings into sharp relief Schumann's progression from gloom to ineffable joy before entering a very different sound-world: that of the great American composer Charles Wuorinen, whose piano trio is based on small, complex rhythmic gestures thrown between instruments. The anxious energy of Schumann's trio can be found in Wuorinen's; moments of tender writing for the strings are punctuated by jolts from the piano. Finally, the trio performs Shostakovich's Piano Trio No. 2 — a work by turns plangent and lyrical before finding its restive conclusion in a final movement inspired by Schubert's second piano trio.

Upstate - Colony
February 15, 2019 - Woodstock

For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging andthrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet's dazzling new album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll.Recorded primarily over six days at the Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY, 'Healing' is the band's first release with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown. It's also their firstproject to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean in to their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band since their earliest days.Upstate first emerged from New York's Hudson Valley in 2015 with their critically acclaimed debut, 'A Remedy.'

Listen and you will be whisked away, finding something old, something new, and a heart warmed between the two.
