Klucevsek, Guy - Teetering On The Verge Of Normalcy

SKU 34-ST 225
"Teetering on the Verge of Normalcy is the latest CD from the "trailblazing virtuoso" (The Wall Street Journal) accordionist Guy Klucevsek.
"Friendship and tributes bind this album together," Sarah Cahill writes in the CD's Introduction. "Compared to his previous work, this heartfelt album has an especially elegiac quality, informed by the loss of comrades and colleagues."
Typical of Guy's music, this CD abounds in sweetly gorgeous melodies, infectious rhythms, piquant harmonies, and superb musicianship. It's one of the most readily accessible CDs Starkland has issued. After discussing the sly complexities of the CD's works, Cahill notes, "What is amazing, then, is how natural and right this music sounds," adding it's "an album you can dance to."
Several pieces are dedicated to close friends. Guy composed For Lars, Again for fellow accordionist Lars Hollmer (died 2008), Shimmer for composer William Duckworth (died 2012), and Bob Flath Waltzes with the Angels for arts patron Bob Flath (died 2014).
Other pieces are tributes to composers who have inspired Klucevsek: Three Quarter Moon for Kurt Weill; Little BigTop for Fellini's long-time composer, Nino Rota; and The Asphalt Orchid for Astor Piazzolla."
