Tom Schnauber: Death & Waltzes



Shipping time: In stock | Free shipping within the US
Death and Waltzes is acollection of music for string orchestra by German-American composer Tom Schnauber. It is an extension of the composer's work with the Russian String Orchestra after winning their "International Homage to Mozart" Composition Competition in 2006. The nine works featured were written betrween 1995 and 2014; some specifically for the R.S.O. all linked by themes suggested in the album's title. Some are single-movement "in memoriam" - type pieces in fond and sometimes aching memory of other musicians: the vivacious violinist and conductor Henri Temianka; the gifted and underplayed composer Leroy Southers; and Schnauber's first musical "hero", J.S. Bach. Another is in memory of the composer's father, who died during the making of this album. Among the other works are two dances; mysterious and off-kilter waltzes, reflections of Schnauber's Alpine heritage and two left feet. Another two are stories told in music whose narratives involve both dancing and dying. They invoke experiences of the composer's fictional "alter ego", eminent musicologist Johannes von Marland.
