Review of Concert Imaginaire’s Two Albums
The music by the interesting and eclectic chamber ensemble Concert Imaginaire ranges from abstract sound collages to delicate chamber music to quirky art rock. The group was initiated by music director David Hahn in 2011.
The American music blog Exposé has reviewed the Concert Imaginaire’s two releases on The Sublunar Society.
In essence, they think that Fortune’s Wheel is “a promising debut, with a distinctive sound and some excellent instrumental work”.
Concerning Passionate Isolation they refer to both Béla Bartók and King Crimson. They conclude that “Passionate Isolation is quieter and more moody, with the most intense music placed in the first half…” Moreover: “Both of these recordings provide evidence that RIO is alive and well…” (RIO=Rock in Opposition).
