COMING SOON: Apollo Chamber Players - European Folkscapes


Video: Apollo Chamber Players 2013-2014 Season Preview

PARMA Recordings is pleased to announce a new project in collaboration with the Houston-based Apollo Chamber Players. PARMA’s imprint label Navona Records will be releasing Apollo’s debut album EUROPEAN FOLKSCAPES in early 2014.

This album is an exploration of the traditional folk melodies of Europe and will engage listeners with arrangements of music rooted in the cultures of the Basque, Slavik, Balkan, and other regions. In addition to arrangements of these traditional works for string quartet, the album will also feature a newly commissioned work by composer Karim Al-Zand (Professor of Music, Shepherd School of Music at Rice University) titled “Fantasy on Bulgarian Rhythms.”

Leading up to the album’s release and as a highlight of the group's 2013-2014 season, the Apollo Chamber Players will be touring the East Coast in support of their new project. This tour will include the group’s Carnegie Hall debut in New York City on October 11, 2013.

An exclusive EP with selections from the new album will be sold at these shows, so be sure not to miss out!
