More Info:

Icarus Quartet's debut album, BIG THINGS, is comprised of three substantial works by composers Michael Laurello, Brad Lubman, and Paul Lansky that have helped catalyze the unmistakable aesthetic of this half piano/half percussion group. The album opens with Michael Laurello's rhythmically driving "Big Things," an arrangement dedicated to icarus Quartet. Brad Lubman's "Tangents" eschews any given or predictable narrative in favor of a nonsensical dreamworld that also inspired the pancake-themed album art. Paul Lansky's eight-movement work "Textures" celebrates the multifarious sonic potential of percussion and piano together. Laurello, Lubman, and Lansky have each been elemental to the existence of the ensemble and it is with great pleasure that icarus Quartet shares their music on this energetic 60-minute tour de force.
