Lifting The Veil

CD & Booklet by super saxophonist George Wolfe and The New Millennium Ensemble.

Using the saxophone as his voice, George Wolfe combines his artistry with sound synthesis and other contemporary media to explore the connection between music, cosmology, mythology, and religion through both contemporary and traditional compositions.

The structure of each piece performed relates to either classical or contemporary world views. Dr. Wolfe has also created an approach to classical improvisation which he skillfully demonstrates on the opening and closing compositions on this CD. The CD includes the music of John Cage, Mozart, J.S. Bach, Ryo Noda, M. William Karlins, and Jody Nagel. The CD also comes with a separate booklet titled Program Notes on Music and Cosmology by Dr. George Wolfe, Professor of Music at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
