Chamber Music By Alan Schmitz
“What music encapsulates the 90s?” This question is usually answered with grunge, alt-rock, manufactured pop, hip-hop, or any combination thereof. With NINETIES TIMEFLOW, composer Alan Schmitz steers us in another direction with a collection of contemporary classical works that represents the overarching themes of his work throughout the decade. The melodic, evocative, and accessible works on this release cap off a revolutionary century of classical composition with the perfect balance of influence and ingenuity.
From traditional string trios to violin and marimba duos, Schmitz’s works span a diverse set of configurations that perfectly compliment his style as a composer. The 18 performers on this release match the diversity of Schmitz’s composition and play each piece with a deep understanding of his artistic vision.
