Happy Valentines Day!!!!

I’m excited to share with you the world premiere recording of Ronald Pearl’s  My Name is Red on the Artists Recording Collective Label (ARC).   The piece, originally written in 2007, according to the composer, was inspired by the novel of the same name by Orhan Pamuk, the great Turkish novelist and Nobel Laureate.

Ron describes the design of the piece as follows: “As in the novel, the point of intersection between the Islamic world and the west of the 16th century was Venice: it is here the piece begins – with a barcarolle, and a reference to Mendelssohn’s famous Song Without Words/ ‘Venetian Boat Song’. From there it moves steadily eastward. The music is in not meant as an imitation of Turkish styles, but instead is meant to evoke the musical traditions that developed throughout the Islamic world.”

To get a free download of this piece, simply signup on my mailing list beginning Tuesday, February 18th, 2014.  I’ll be giving this track as a free download from 2/18/14 through 3/18/14.

My Name is Red will also be available for purchase at CDBaby and iTunes after the 18th of February.
