Notes and Editorial Reviews

The latest release from this venturesome label showcases Robert Martin’s refreshingly modern musical interpretations of four paintings by Arshile Gorky- the Armenian-American master. Expertly performed by the North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Max Lifchitz, the album features premiere recordings of six compositions written over a period of three decades. Soloists include flutist Lisa Hansen and guitarist Jordan Dodson. “Martin’s interest in Gorky’s art is apparently not so much in the subject matter of a particular picture as in the general notion of what gives an abstract image wholeness and presence.” (New York Times) The latest release from this venturesome label showcases Robert Martin’s refreshingly modern musical interpretations of four paintings by Arshile Gorky- the Armenian-American master.
