Described as a ‘conductor who makes a difference’ (Daily Telegraph), and
acclaimed for her artistic vision and commitment to accessibility in classical music,
Marin Alsop founded String Fever in 1981. Its pioneering blend of jazz, pop and
classical repertoire took critics and audiences by storm, breaking the boundaries
between musical genres through remarkable versatility and a palpable sense of
fun. This album reflects String Fever’s forays into standards ranging from Rogers
and Hart’s early hit Manhattan to Dave Brubeck’s famously rhythmic Blue Rondo
à la Turk. Much in demand by many top solo artists from Billy Joel to the
late Sir Yehudi Menuhin, String Fever is featured on two of Billy
Joel’s albums, Nylon Curtain and Innocent Man. String Fever has
collaborated with vocalist Mel Tormé, top dance great Honi Coles,
and appeared as featured soloists with the Colorado Symphony
Orchestra and the Eugene Symphony Orchestra.
