'Constellations' on CD
'Constellations: Minimal Music for Recorders' is the debut album of recorder player Sarah Jeffery.
This album was born from a simple idea – to play the music I love to listen to, on the instruments I love to play. The main inspiration has been the process of arranging Steve Reichs minimalist masterpiece Vermont Counterpoint for the recorder, a project that has spanned a good few years and that I am proud to present here.
We can see minimalism apparent in medieval canons, in Renaissance ornamentation, in fantastically diverse contemporary works, and in (not so) traditional folk music.The title Constellations refers to these discrete clusters of sound worlds each light years apart yet sharing similarities across the distance. Gradually shape-shifting in our perception, the more we pay attention. Tangible pinpoints of light that beckon the eyes, and ears, to follow.
