Notes and Editorial Reviews

No other liquor has a more mysterious aura than absinthe, a green beverage with a high alcohol content. It was referred to as “the green fairy” and was reported to make people crazy. In the late nineteenth century during La Belle Epoque Paris, the center of the world, there were more than 30,000 cabarets and cafés. At Le Chat Noir, beside Satie at the piano, one could also find poet, Charles Cross, who was able to drink twenty absinthes a night! Van Gogh, Manet, Rambeau, Baudelaire and many other artists featured absinthe in their works. Gary Schocker now joins the team, composing Absinthe in 2009 for Gaspr Hoyos based on a theme by pianist and composer, Stanley Hanks. Here, virtuoso flautist Gaspar Hoyos and virtuoso pianist, David Read more Violi, team up to deliver this sensuous and intoxicating program. Read less
