Navona Records has released Meira’s new Ocean Calling album of a trilogy of works for two pianos, performed by Philip Bush and Elizabeth Loparits.
Ocean Calling is a moving trilogy for two pianos dedicated to the ocean. The three pieces — Waves and Currents, From the Depths, and The Giant Blue — speak to the vast majesty of the aquatic world and the many challenges that face it. Innovative performance techniques coax unique sounds out of the instruments; a metal chain rustles on vibrating strings to mimic the white noise of breakers in Waves and Currents, while From the Depths utilizes coloristic “inside piano” techniques, and bowed tones recall sounds from the blue whale in The Giant Blue.
