Win Jan Vogler and the Knights: Experience: Live From New York!
Sony Classical has released this latest from Jan Vogler, and here’s what they have to say for themselves–and you’ll see what drew me to it:
For two nights in October 2008, The New York club, Le Poisson Rouge rocked to the sounds of Shostakovich and Jimi Hendrix and the result is a live recording of a stunning collaboration that takes Jan Vogler’s trademark “singing-playing” style to new heights. Vogler abandons a typical classical orchestra and teams up with the cutting-edge New York ensemble The Knights. The CD’s repertoire centers on the music of Russia’s Dmitri Shostakovich â€“ from his Cello Concerto No. 1 to the catchy waltzes he wrote for film scores and jazz suites â€“ but it ends with a surprising take on Jimi Hendrix
‘s “Machine Gun.”
So yeah, a Hendrix track covered by classical/string performers. Okay, I’m in. And you can be in too, since we got a spare copy here that you can win. Want to try for it? Sure thing…just enter using the form below and enter once a day. If we draw your name, you snag it. Good luck.
