Description

All artists seek their own creative identity or voice. The process often begins with emulation and imitation of the models already established. But the process can also involve rejection of that which has come before. This desire, this need to be different and new, this distancing from ones artistic forebears, is the anxiety of influence. On this sixth Meridian album, we have continued on our course through uncharted waters. In our quest for new sounds, we have added piano to the Ensemble for this disc, and have selected repertoire which romps through this new sonic spectrum. Works by Ensemble members, commissioned works, and pieces by some of our favorite composers comprise the music on this disc. We hope that the anxiety of influence, leading us away from the past, will push us ever forward. Meridian Arts Ensemble Frank Zappa (1940-1993) – Run Home Slow, The Little March, Little House I Used to Live In, The Black Page

Press reviews

American Record Guide

(…) certainly one of the top brass quintets anywhere (…)

Christian Calson

(…) M.A.E. new release is fair warning for how much passion and life there can be in chamber pieces.

Volkskrant

(…) de groep realiseert hier die nauwluisterende mengeling van losheid en precisie die bij Zappa hoort. (…)
