- (Harrison Gradwell Slater)
- Format: CD
In this dazzling debut CD, Harrison Slater transports us into a world of 'exotic places and distant perfumes' with all the sublime resonance of 'night music.' Slater, author of the suspense novel, 'Night Music' performs solo and with the Newton Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jeffrey Rink, in piano works by Mozart, where we discover turbulent flights of mood and somber eloquence. Listeners have described Slater's Mozart CD as 'elegant' and 'deeply moving' and critics like Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe have described Slater's performance as 'fluent, tasteful and spirited.' Readers of Slater's novel, 'Night Music' have discovered that this CD provides a lush background to that work: 'Slater gets as close as anyone can to reproducing in prose the sound and effect of some of Mozart's music, which provides a soundtrack to the action.' (The Boston Globe) Slater's interpretation of Mozart is a combination of passion, control, and style and presents a remarkably intuitive approach to the most universal composer in history.
