Spin

“From a very simple initial concept, Judith Shatin carves a brief but very effective little piece, Spin. Scored for a sextet comprising flute, clarinet, bassoon, violin, viola, and cello, Shatin explores multiple types of spin as applied to music, from chords that unfold and collapse back onto themselves through to dance rhythms that spin between groups of instruments. Each of the work’s two sections ends with a section that “spins like a top.” The players here seem to enjoy the lighthearted gaiety of it all….
All performances are lovingly sculpted and delivered with the utmost dedication. The recording is well balanced, with a nice sense of focus and depth.” –Fanfare
