Inbal Segev - Anna Clyne-Dance makes 'Manao Radio: Year-end Catches of the Day'

Bookmark and Share

"Catch of the Day" is Matthew Gurewitsch's 90-minute sampler of recent recordings, with off-the-cuff commentary, reminiscences, and free association. It airs at noon Hawaiian time the first and last Sunday of each month as part of Paul Janes-Brown's "Alpha & Omega Show" on KMNO, Manao Radio 91.7 FM, an all-volunteer station in Wailuku.

Herewith are Matthew's comments on his final show of the year. His picks include: Anna Clyne: Mythologies on Avie with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, featuring Cellist: Inbal Segev.

Matthew Gurewitsch writes......She's quite the conjuror, Anna Clyne, and what she conjures here from the getgo is celluloid turbulence, roiling like the sea, searing like sheet lightning. For color and movement and a sense of the dramatic, she invites comparison with a John Williams, say, or an Erich Korngold, the founding father of movie music. What's missing is the spark of melody that catches fire in the imagination and burns itself into the imagination. Still, this "Masquerade" thrills while it lasts.
