Resonance: Disc 2 (2012)

<em>Resonance:</em> Disc 2

Disc II explores music’s ability to transport audiences to places near and far. Samuel Barber’s Dover Beach depicts a picturesque English shoreline. Jean Sibelius’s brooding String Quartet in d minor enraptures listeners with the brutal winters and stark memories of his native Finland. Debussy delivers listeners to the Greek isle of Lesbos, while Albéniz conveys images of the Iberian Peninsula. The disc culminates in Gustav Mahler’s enchanting setting of a child’s vision of heaven.
