Navona Records has announced that June 9 will be the official release date for Meira’s Waves and Currents, a preview of her forthcoming Ocean Calling album of three works for two pianos, performed by Philip Bush and Elizabeth Loparits.
Ocean Calling is 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, including a metal chain rustling on vibrating strings to mimic the white noise of breakers in Waves and Currents.
