Rhapsody

£12.00

VIDA's ability to “conjure up an orchestral palette of colour and effects” (Classic FM) combined with their “exquisite tonal and dynamic control” has firmly established them as a passionate and masterful ensemble who sparkle with “vitality and spontaneity” (Acoustic). Rhapsody is a collection of new works and arrangements by the world-class VIDA Guitar Quartet. The pieces are united by a theme of dance music as interpreted by different classical composers, covering the swing-band dance music of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, Malcolm Arnold's English Dances, Gaelic folk- melodies in David Crittenden's A Scottish Fantasy, and the Klezmer rhythms of traditional Yiddish communities in Adam Gorb's Yiddish Dances.
