The Chamber Music of Gene Pritsker
Composer/guitarist Gene Pritsker and Composer/percussionist Peter Jarvis team up for an album of new music for electric guitar and drum set. For this endeavor, besides writing their own compositions, the duo reached out to a few composers and requested some new music for this unusual combination. The result is an album of six compositions by Jarvis, Pritsker, David Saperstein, Joseph Pehrson, Jessica Wells and Daniel Palkowski. Daniel on synthesizers along with Dan Cooper on bass, join the duo to form a quartet with electronics in the Jessica Wells composition. The music on this recording forms a synergy between complex musical notation and passages of free improvisation.
'The Mozart Influence' performed by CompCord Ensemble on Composers Concordance RecordsGene has 4 pieces: 'Leck Mir Den Arsch Fein Recht Schön Sauber' (arrangement of a Mozart canon) Trembling’, 'MoZartina' (arrangement of Tchaikovsky) and the r&b song ‘Weeping’.
