ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hauntings is a collection of orchestral works and one chamber work by composer, Richard Jordan Smoot. Spanning a period of more than twenty years, this recording showcases the unique and diverse artistic concerns of this composer. The title work, Hauntings, was the composer's response to the events of 9/11 in the United States, while Suite for Prague is an imaginary journey through time, evoking the eternal spirit of the city of Prague with all of its mysticism and modern excitement. Similarly, SOHO: Orpheus In The Underworld involves a kind of spiritual evocation, but in this case inspired by the composer's residency with a dance company in SOHO, NYC in the late 1990s. Master classical guitarist, Christopher Teves, stunningly and virtuosically captures the spirit of time and place in this work, serving as a modern version of Orpheus. Overture to Faust, J.D. is a rocking orchestra work described by FANFARE Magazine as "stunning." It is the opening work for Smoot's media creation, Faust, J.D. In The Twilight Kingdom, an early work for string orchestra, is a meditative composition inspired by T.S. Eliot. The CD is filled out by the majestic Arising and contemplative Meditation for orchestra. This recording will be captivating for a diverse audience of music lovers. Smoot is a classical guitarist, electronic musician and very active songwriter, as well as a composer of many works for traditional classical mediums. His musical style is inspired by many diverse artists from Bach and Beethoven to Egberto Gismonti.
