Transatlantic Tales by Faye-Ellen Silverman

14 04 2011

    We received a new album, Transatlantic Tales, from composer Faye-Ellen Silverman.  This is an album including 7 compositions that Ms. Silverman collaborated with Guitarist Volkmar Zimmermann.  Like Ms. Silverman’s earlier album, Manhattan Stories (also on Scordatura’s collection) arising from her work and friendships in New York City, Transatlantic Tales presents a symbol of cross-ocean friendship between her and Zimmermann.    

   On Today’s Scordatura Show, we would love to play two compositions from Transatlantic Tales and one from Manhattan Stories.  5-7 pm, stay tuned.
