Dowland's Tears

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

It’s almost a theme and variations edition of New Sounds, taking John Dowland’s “Flow My Tears” as a starting point and playing on the theme of tears and melancholy.  Hear mostly instrumental works based on Dowland’s “Lachrimae” pieces, the best known of which is probably "Flow my Tears," - and it eventually had words.  There’s multiple moods and variations on tears from Austrian trombonist Christian Muthspiel and an all-star quartet of musicians who “are at home in the worlds of both composed music as well as improvisation and jazz.”
