Carl Vollrath's OLD AND NEW POETRY from Navona Records is a lovingly-prepared setting of the works of seminal poets William Blake and Sara Teasdale, as well as the contemporary writer John Gracen Brown. The verses chosen by Vollrath-including such varied selections as Blake's "The Fly," Teasdale's "Dusk In War Time," and Brown's "The Coming of a Summer Rainstorm"-all reflect the composer's belief in the interdependency of all life on earth. Employing piano, saxophone, and mezzo-soprano, Vollrath thoughtfully pushes tonal boundaries in response to the poetic language. The evocative performances captured on OLD AND NEW POETRY reveal the composer's intimate relationship with the text and offer listeners a compelling musical-literary experience.
