About

The third release in the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project, 'Parallel Tones' takes two iconic works both united by New York. Strauss's 'Sinfonia Domestica' - debuted at Carnegie Hall and featuring four saxophones in what was the composer's idea of the 'American' sound - and Ellington's 'Harlem', a big band piece very much inspired by Strauss's tone poems.

These two 'parallel tones' - one going from Europe to America and one from America back in time to Europe – morph 19th century European musical language with that of the American 20th century, crossing paths in New York.

Launched in 2014, the KJSP series features projects across all of Kristjan Järvi’s ensembles and is characterised by the conductor’s unmistakable approach in taking a fresh look at the old, with concepts and presentation that transcend the borders of classical music.
