The award winning Aeolus Quartet offers the second installment in their Many-Sided Music Project. This ongoing project collects distinctive voices of American composers, combining the classic with the modern. “Ariel and Other Poems” takes its name from the original title of Sylvia Plath’s last manuscript. The poems contained therein include the work that inspired Christopher Theofanidis’ Ariel Ascending, and joined by the rich expansive tones of the Copland, the buzzing electricity of the Mazzoli, and the deep catharsis of the Barber : the album “Ariel and Other Poems” seeks to offer a small sampling of the multi-faceted collection of American chamber music.
