Adventurous colorful ensembles Chris Torkewitz – NY ENSEMBLES: Multi-instrumentalist Chris has released an album of the most adventurous colorful ensembles you will ever hear… while I didn’t see the album on YouTube yet (official release date is 1 May, 2022), here’s a video that will give you an intimate look at his full-bodied and engaging piano style…
Though the new album isn’t posted yet, I expect that if you SUBSCRIBE to Chris’s channel on YouTube, it will be there by the time the album releases officially.
Chris engaged many players, too many to list here… you can check them out here… I can tell you right now, DJ’s of all stripes will be choosing the powerful “Steingarden” for constant rotations… truly THE most powerful ensemble composition I’ve listened to (yet) in 2022!
A really laid-back feel on the introduction to “Seiltanz” (Tightrope Walk), segues very nicely into a totally different groove than you expected, and you can feel the tension of the high-wire walker… flawless recording and highly spirited playing make this a most memorable sonic experience.
Movement II of “Farbtoene (Chamber Suite II)” is full of surprises, and will have your ears fully captured by the second bar… the dynamic changes created by the joint efforts of the ensemble players are simply amazing!
I had no difficulty (whatsoever) in making my choice for personal favorite of the ten tantalizing performances offered up… “Filou” (Friend) held me spellbound for the entire 13:47 length… it’s clear that Chris is a master at both composition and execution.
