More Info:

Living Language is pianist Jacob Greenberg's consideration of musical style and evolving cultural legacy, across a broad range of pieces. This disc explores how composers build on their history with a highly personal creative vocabulary, bringing their work forward into the present; these artists give thoughtful tribute while also seeking renewal. The program features Béla Bartók's virtuosic Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs, the boogie-woogie and stride piano-inspired Endless Shout by George Lewis, Chopin's patriotic and wistful op. 41 Mazurkas, Wang Lu's modernized guqin music titled Constellations Apart (a premiere recording), and Leos Janácek's kaleidoscopic suite In the Mists, rooted in the rhythms of spoken Czech and marked by profound grief.
