Interesting offering from Broadway Dawn
Still mulling this one over. She seems to fit these sort of pheudo pop programs better than her classical ventures. Schneider is capable in arrainging and conducting some Australian orchestra or whatever they are. -Bz
Great voice, great Music, Carlos Drummond's histories captured in songs to make them last forever, just as his poetry.
3 Grammy Awards later....
One of the freshest, most compelling Classical music in years. 3 Grammys including Best Classical Vocal Solo and Best Contemporary Classical Composition. Great work Maria and Dawn!
About Maria Schneider
Maria Schneider is widely thought of as a potentially great arranger who is following in the footsteps of Gil Evans (her main inspiration), George Russell, and Bob Brookmeyer. After extensive musical study, Schneider moved to New York in 1985 and from 1985-1988 was an assistant to Gil Evans. She has since conducted her music with a variety of European radio orchestras, written for the Mel Lewis big band, and received many commissions. Schneider's highly original music often falls between avant-garde jazz and modern classical. ~ Scott Yanow
