Cross Island Ensemble to name their next CD after a Masquerade-music publication(August 13, 2011)
Cellist Suzanne Mueller and Pianist Elinor Abrams Zayas are 'Cross Island Ensemble' from the USA.
Connections were made over the internet fairly recently, resulting in Suzanne arranging our 'Fuerza Tranquila' for cello and piano (as opposed to our current Alto saxophone/piano edition). They have also performed other pieces of ours, including Czardas as a trio (with guest clarinettist Joseph Rutkowski Jr) again, expertly arranged by Suzanne.
We received news recently that the ensemble have chosen to feature Fuerza Tranquila on their next CD, due out around Autumn (or 'fall!') 2011. The CD is to be named 'Quiet Strength' (the meaning of 'Fuerza Tranquila').
We wish them all the very best and look forward to hearing the recording.
