The word “chroma” describes the purity, hue or saturation of color. Paul Zonn’s Chroma for oboe and piano evokes just that, a sonic palette of varying intensities and purity to enliven one’s senses! Chroma was played by oboist Jared Hauser, and pianist Karen Ann Krieger, in a program of colorful works including Poulenc’s Trio for Piano, Oboe and Bassoon (with Peter Kolkay), Peter Hope’s Four Sketches, and Arnold’s Sonatine for Oboe and Piano.
Music by Tom Flaherty, Missy Mazzoli, Peter Yates, Daniel Felsenfeld, and much more, recorded by Multiple GRAMMY® nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko who enjoys bringing into the world things that are outside the box – powerful pieces that often possess unusual sonic qualities or instrumentation.
