ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hear the words “classical music” and what comes to mind? Somber images of suits and symphony halls, or perhaps your grandparents’ old LPs? If you think a classical performance is too formal or dull, then you owe it to yourself to check out Nova Era. Based in Orlando, Nova Era is breathing new life into classical music with a modern approach. Much more than an attempt at Mozart: Plugged-In, Nova Era’s updated arrangements bring out the timeless appeal of classics such as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Pachelbel’s Canon. Nova Era was Founded in 1999 by Producer/Composer Andres Roca and Oboist Maria Luisa Coppelli. Nova Era’s distinct sound is evident in original works by producer/composer Andres Roca. Roca has created a special chemistry with his focus on the oboe, cello, and violin. Nova Era’s rhythm section, featuring drums, electric bass, and keyboard, completes this effect. These dynamic musicians could be equally at home in a rock band or a symphony orchestra, and their passion for Roca’s work is clear. Nova Era performs in handcrafted 18th century costumes, and ornate, powdered wigs. This beautiful touch lends an authenticity which lifts the music to a higher level. At first glance, you might think you are attending an 18th century concert — that is, until you see the electric instruments, taking a giant leap into the 21st century.This visual combination of old and new perfectly reflects the music of Nova Era. Nova Era takes classical music out of its isolated arena, giving it a warm and exciting edge that everyone can enjoy. Popular demand for Nova Era has the band performing around the U.S. and Europe. Previous engagements include performances in Venice, Paris, The Palace at Versailles, Dubai UAE, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, Las Vegas and NYC just to name a few.. In partnership with the QVC network, Nova Era has performed frequently on television as well.

Fortissimo - Classics with an 'Arobic Beat' ?
Interesting interpretations... although I appreciate the 'intent' to infuse the classics with more instrumental 'energy' one must not forget that the original artistic creators of these timeless classical arrangements didn't intend them to be anything but what they have always been ...original interpretations of the creator artist(s). Adding drum beats and speeding up the tempo does little for the 'sound' that classical music enthusiasts already understand, relate to and appreciate :)
Your new interpretations are less 'creative based' than one might expect....as a result this listener found little enjoyment in the 'listening' of the majority of arrangements. In searching for a way to offer a 'compliment' to this innovative musical group, may I suggest putting together a 'video' which would match the 'mood' and 'movement' of the new tempo of the music...such as 'Arobics for Seniors'?...sorry, not kidding... Try Listening yourself, while attempting to sit still for any length of time and see what it does to the 'nerve endings'. Wanna git up and move those body parts while pumping a few hand weights?
