This Week’s Tracks from Soundcloud

As I have a lot on at the moment, this evening’s round-up, as a sort of follow-through to last Sunday’s post about Leo Ornstein and his music, will be limited to two performances of older pieces and one new composition, while dispensing with the commentary. Namely, a rendition of George Antheil’s “Ballet mécanique” by the large Eindhoven ensemble Lunapark as well as one of Ornstein’s “Ballade for Saxophone and Piano” (written ca. 1955) by the Quiet City Chamber Ensemble, a quartet based a bit north of New York, along with a new work by a classical pianist and conductor in London, Alisdair Kitchen, entitled simply “Poem (Homage to Leo Ornstein).”
