Mohammed Fairouz: “Chorale Fantasy”

 

Mohammed Fairouz’s music at its best embodies fetching lyricism and embraces an elegantly incorporated polyglot musical language. The embedded track below, “Chorale Fantasy” from his new recording Native Informant on Naxos Records, sets a deeply buried chorale texture against Middle Eastern melodies and flashes of Brodsky Quartet style third stream gestures. An intricate amalgam to be sure, but neither fussy nor overreaching.
