NOUVELLE VIE: A REDISCOVERY OF FRENCH FLUTE MUSIC Michelle Batty Stanley flute Margaret McDonald piano On her new album NOUVELLE VIE, flutist Michelle Batty Stanley and pianist Margaret McDonald breathe new life into classic 19th and 20th century compositions. The duo dream up new interpretations of both familiar French favorites as well as works by lesser known composers. The compositions Stanley and McDonald chose for NOUVELLE VIE were written either for the Paris Conservatory Flute Studio as end of the year projects or as small concert pieces. The album is reminiscent of the opera-like qualities of that specific era of music, a time when the flute became the star instrument. The duo create a dynamic interplay with melody lines that stretch through time back to that fruitful era of flute music. Rene De Boisdeffre’s Canzonetta. Op 39. No. 8 is light and airy, while the grandiose Romance. Op 33 by Emile Bernard fills every possible air pocket with sound. Stanley and McDonald create music so full, you might imagine you were listening to an orchestra. Elegance and grace flow from this album, provoking a sense of waking. You hear the dawn rise in NOUVELLE VIE, a dawn presumably once felt by those 19th and 20th century composers who changed the history of flute music forever.

Navona Records is proud to announce the release of Daniel Crozier’s enchanting East of The Sun and West of The Moon, orchestral album. Using music, rather than words, to tell his story, Crozier’s music is full of startling detail and narrative. The two pieces comprising this album serve as windows into Crozier’s theory of musical story telling. Listeners are challenged to find a better narrative voice than the delicate oboe positioned against the profound strings. Specifically, one feels this texture in Ballade: A Tale after the Brothers Grimm, rendered exquisitely by the Slovak National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Stanislav Vavrínek. The piece flows with scenery and drama experienced through, what Crozier has referred to as, “three ideas” representing characters whose interaction creates the story of the piece. His compositions have been praised by both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The Baltimore Sun wrote, “Composer Crozier has responded … with music of extraordinary depth and power.” Crozier’s movement, “Capriccio” (performed by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Gerard Schwarz) was awarded first prize in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra’s Fresh Ink competition for Florida composers. ? Crozier has been a recipient of grants or awards from organizations including the Florida Department of State, the Ernst & Elfriede Frank Foundation, ASCAP, and the National Opera Asscociation. Explore the magical world East of The Sun and West of The Moon, and let your imagination show you the stories therein.
