Here’s a collection that feels like a photo collage of majestic Colorado scenery.
Boulder clarinetist Kellan Toohey drew inspiration from his surroundings for his new album, "Scenes From Home." He assembled five pieces by composers who have lived here in Colorado, conjuring a portrait of the Rocky Mountain landscape.
Andrew Halladay illustrates complex interplay of light and shadow while depicting “Five Scenes From Our Aspen Grove.”
Toohey succeeds in creating musical snapshots of Colorado’s natural beauty. The clarinetist also highlights the robust musical community that exists in the state.
Toohey pulls off an impressive feat on this disc. Like a great nature photograph, this music evokes a deeper emotional connection to a special place.
