Get swept away by the majestic musicality of Mathew Rosenblum: Möbius Loop. Presented by Boston Modern Orchestra Project, the three-part concerto borrows notes from classical, free jazz, rock, minimalism, folk, and world music traditions. Gil Rose conducted baritone saxophonist Kenneth Coon, percussionist Lisa Pegher, and the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet to create the beautiful sound. Composer Mathew Rosenblum created Möbius Loop as a tribute to one of his idols, Sigurd Raschèr, founder of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartert. This is Rosenblum’s first composition for saxophone, but the professor of music at the University of Pittsburgh makes the grade with this lovely, layered production.
