quaver - William Cranford - Fantasia No.3 á4 Brady Lanier, Marie Dalby, Tobi Szüts, Loren Ludwig, viols Announcing the release of the Maxima records CD ‘quaver’ – featuring music by Shostakovich, Machaut, Sheryl Crow, Ratatat, Piazzolla and many more! To order the new CD email email@example.com or visit http://www.quaver.org/. Quaver is committed to playing exciting music, new and old, in ways that engage the eclectic sensibilities of the iPod era. Our concerts bring together music ranging from Petrucci to Purcell, and from Shostakovich to Sheryl Crow. We draw on the traditional viol consort to reunite polyphony's rich musical heritage with the present: seventeenth-century pavans and fantasias are paired with recent polyphonic music from performers such as the rock band Radiohead, the electronica ensemble Ratatat, and the composers Astor Piazzolla and Gyorgy Ligeti. Quaver appeals to audiences as diverse as our music, appearing in concert halls, coffee shops, clubs and art galleries.
