ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rick Sowash (b. 1950)
Unlike most composers, Rick Sowash has not sought an academic or commercial career in music. Following the example of Charles Ives, Sowash has retained his art as a passionate avocation, earning his living in non-musical ways. He is the author of three books about the history and folklore of Ohio, his native state. He has also been a politician, arts administrator, radio broadcaster and innkeeper. He is a member of ASCAP, both as a composer and as a publisher. His books, scores and CDs are published by the Rick Sowash Publishing Company. For more information, go to: www.sowash.com
His other CD's are:
Rick Sowash: Sanctuary at 3am (Five works for various chamber ensembles)
(also available from CD Baby)
Rick Sowash: A Portrait at 50 (Five works for various chamber ensembles)
Rick Sowash: Four Piano Trios (violin, cello and piano)
Rick Sowash: Chamber Music with Clarinet (violin, cello and piano)
Rick Sowash: Enchantment of April (Three trios for clarinet, cello and piano)

A Sublime Synthesis
"The Four Piano Trios" is an astounding disc--Sowash/Mirecourt are truly symbiotic here. Sowash is a genius at painting vivid visual sound images, and his soul-wrenching melodies, lush harmonies, sophisticated, incisive rhythms, and musical humor permeate the four trios on this disc. The Mirecourt Trio's unquestionable virtuosity propels their highly-developed artistic insight into Sowash's music and are masters at bringing these images so compellingly to our ears.
