INGRAM MARSHALL's Music Featured in "Shutter Island"

IslandThose being scared out of their wits by Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" can thank Ingram Marshall's Fog Tropes for helping create the opening mood. Also heard is the Prelude to his work Alcatraz. Both include sounds recorded around the San Francisco Bay (the latter from the now-abandoned Alcatraz Prison). Mark Swed writes about Fog Tropes and the other contemporary classical works in this groundbreaking soundtrack on the L.A. Times' arts site Culture Monster.

Raves for MIGUEL DEL AGUILA's Salón Buenos Aires CD

Bridge Records' recording of Camerata San Antonio is finding enthusiastic support from all quarters. Quotes like: "This is vibrant, colorful music, often pulsating with a tremendous rhythmic vitality." (Fanfare), and "Miguel del Aguila's chamber music is that rarest of things: unmistakably modern music built around a core of fundamental grace." (CD Hotlist for Libraries).

Juliana Farha, managing director of the British website dilettante.com, says: "I discovered this [CD] through a review by Frank Oteri at New Music Box. On the strength of one track, I bought it instantly, and can't stop listening to it." Seems appropriate for a CD that contains a movement called "Obsessed Milonga."

Jacob TV Jacob ter Veldhuis's Tallahatchie Concerto for alto sax, in its new transcription for symphonic band by Mark Rogers, has its premiere at the North American Saxophone Alliance biennial conference this month. Connie Frigo is the soloist. Dame Evelyn Glennie gave the U.S. premiere of JacobTV's Barracuda Concerto with the Rhode Island Philharmonic in January, under the direction of Larry Rachleff. His chamber music will be the subject of a New Sounds Live concert in New York's Merkin Concert Hall on March 11, hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer. A "Jacob TV on the Radio" Festival will be featured on New York's WQXR, March 17-21.

Further on the band front, we are pleased to announce the publication of Arturo Márquez's Danzon No. 2, transcribed by Oliver Nickel. Following Gustavo Dudamel's Deutsche Grammophon recording with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, the original orchestral version has taken the orchestra world by storm.
