We enter the cold new year on Now is the Time, Sunday, January 6th at 10 pm on HD-2. David Snow’s A Baker’s Tale, originally with narrator but in this version for trumpeter Chris Gekker and piano, is from the CD Winter. From Elena Ruehr’s CD of string quartets, How She Danced, comes her third. Its third movement is also titled “How She Danced,” and the quartet is filled with multiple influences of darting energy.
Edward Ruchalski was inspired to write his lovely, lingering chamber work Winter Light during winter walks. It includes a movement called “By Snowlight.”
Edward Ruchalski: Winter Light
David Snow: A Baker’s Tale
Elena Ruehr: String Quartet No. 3
