“….it is hard to do better than this new Inscape performance….”
On June 24, 2014, Inscape released its “Hérodiade EP,” a digital exclusive recording of Paul Hindemith's ballet score, Hérodiade, on the Sono Luminus label. Commissioned by Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge for Martha Graham, the work was originally premiered alongside Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring at the Library of Congress in 1944. “This work was lacking a compelling and widely available recording,” says Artistic Director Richard Scerbo, “and that is why we are so excited to present this rarely performed work.” Hérodiade will be featured on several of our concerts next season, including our CD release concert at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at University of Maryland, as part of the NextNOW Festival.
Conceived for both iTunes and HD digital download, “Hérodiade EP” has already been recognized as a “lively yet precise reading of the work…” (Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review). Hérodiade is available from these high-res sites, as well as iTunes:
Stay tuned for the release of our new full length Pure Audio BluRay/CD release “American Aggregate” scheduled to for August 26, 2014.
