David Starobin: Variations On A Theme By Carl Nielsen (10:21)

Album Review
Larry Koran
Reviewed 2014-09-18 
In this collection (Vol. 8), David Starobin, “one of the leading guitar virtuosos of our time,” performs works composed in the past 5 years. His Variations On A Theme By Carl Nielsen is based on Nielsen’s song, “Song Behind the Plow,” a simple, march-like melody on which Starobin develops 12 variations that move thru older modes to 20th cent. harmonies. A reviewer describes Paul Lansky’s Partita, which includes a mix of instrumental colors from xylophone to wooden blocks, as “cosmopolitan, sophisticated, and full of bustling energy.” Poul Ruders’ Pages are minimalist expressions of emotions from light and comic to sustained and meditative. George Crumb’s Ghosts of the Alhambra is a work for baritone, guitar and percussion based on the poems of Lorca, and is described as “creepy, scary songs.”
