The image of a deer skull superimposed over a rocky landscape is at once serene and startling, and Ruehr's (b. 1963) music reflects both. Its broad orchestral shades, sweeping string writing, and arching motives, put across with clarity by solo trumpet, brings to mind classic film music and the rural Americana of Copland's popular scores. Yet these elements grind against one another for patches of rough dissonance. The music also seems to spin in many directions at once. Brass and woodwind calls dart out from the music's bubbling rhythm, while doubled octaves in basses and piano ground the music to the earth.


The four orchestral works of composer Elena Ruehr that are assembled on this alluring disc by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project are striking for their combination of rhapsodic, almost sinful lushness and a robust force that keeps the effect from cloying. Her signature orchestrational move is to pull you in with the strings and then let the brass punch you in the gut, and it works every time - even when you know it's coming. Even the overall course of the disc works that way.

SF Gate

Cloud Atlas is a cello concerto (2011) that's inspired by David Mitchell's novel. Six characters narrate stories that move through different time periods into the future. Ruehr focuses on the sixth character-the "goddess" Sonmi-451, and has her moving through all six stories. The music is soulful and dreamy, and Jennifer Kloetzel's rich cello captures the essence of this impressionistic work.


I have had this disc for a while and I am glad I finally opened it. There is an appealing minimalist aspect to some of her orchestral works underlined by rythmic patterns (Shimmer and Ladder to the Moon comes to mind) while others are notable for lush melodies. I have one more disc of her music (vocal works), which I might share as well.
