Three new CDs have been released recently by UNH music faculty members. From Celtic-inspired jazz to 19th century choral music, the CDs range widely in form and style.
UNH resident artist and jazz pianist Mark Shilansky has released the debut CD of his new band, Fugue Mill. The CD weaves jazz through Bluegrass, Celtic, and Classical music.
Listen to clips at markshilansky.com, where the CD is also available for download.
UNH music faculty Ryan Vigil has released Keypunch: Music for 2 and 4 Hands. The CD features the compositions of his former teacher, John McDonald of Tufts University, along with his own music and the music of another of McDonald’s former students, David Claman, now an assistant professor at Lehman College.
Professor of Music William Kempster has released a CD of the first-ever recordings of choral music, both old and new. Called First Impressions, the CD features the UNH Concert Choir and the UNH Chamber Singers. UNH pianists and faculty members Arlene Kies, Chris Kies, and Paul Merrill are featured on keyboards.
