Erik Lindgren: Scores!
Pieces such as “Psychedelic Music For String Quartet” contains tinges of dissonance, soft melodies and articulate themes yet “Visions Of Seattle” features subtle utilization of harmonics by pianist Greg Pagel. In general, the music is often heavenly, blissful and well-orchestrated which should come as no surprise considering Lindgren’s impressive resume, namely his lengthy stint with the cutting edge band, “Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic”, scores for PBS television, residences at well-known universities while occasionally delving into electronic music. A 2-disc set, the second CD is a companion video spanning 34 minutes that provides the listener with the visual aspects to several of these compositions. Scores! is pastoral, mood evoking, impressionistic yet most of all, beautifully arranged and expertly performed. If you haven’t heard of Erik Lindgren up until now, Scores! would be an excellent introduction to the music of this most intriguing artist ......... * * * *
