Notes and Editorial Reviews
New from Pentatone Oxingale Series, Tippet Rise Op. 2016: Domo is a live recording birthed from the inaugural season at the Tippet Rise Art Center in Fishtail Montana. The center's intimate concert space is set on a 10,260-acre working sheep and cattle ranch dotted with majestic large-scale sculptures - all nestled against the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains. The inspiration of artists Cathy and Peter Halstead, Tippet Rise celebrates the concept that art, music, architecture, and nature are inextricably linked in the human experience, each amplifying the other. In music by Scriabin, Chopin, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov, and Anton Garcia Abril; and through extraordinary performances by pianists Yevgeny Sudbin, Svetlana Smolina, Christopher O'Riley, Anne-Marie McDermott, Stephen Hough, Jenny Chen and Julien Brocal; cellist Matt Haimovitz, trumpeter Elmer Churampi, and soprano Emily Helenbrook, Tippet Rise Op. 2016 presents a cornucopia of virtuosity, fantasy, and transcendence.
