If Chopin were a reviewers name they'd not last long either. Joy, life, fuzzy-wuzziness, not very likely. Here we have a saline syrup of sad notes puffed out as clouds of oppression and dissolution. Cold and rarely inspiring. Great for mood setting a Victorian story set in modern times, if that were to become a popular show. #WastingTalents #BetterOffDead
"Nocturne Op27 Nº1 in C# minor" is the first track on Chopin Project, the debut album from Dead Composers Club. Dead Composers Club, formed by saxophonist Noah Preminger and drummer Rob Garcia, also features guitarist Nate Radley and bassist Kim Cass. The idea behind the Dead Composers Club is to celebrate and explore the music of iconic composers. The quartet takes a thrillingly imaginative approach to Chopin's Nocturnes and Preludes, approaching these timeless works with a vitality and urgency that connects these stellar modern musicians with their 19th-century source, regardless of elapsed centuries.
