Strum, Sospiri & Serenade
Jessie Montgomery's lively Strum leads into heartfelt works by Elgar and Tchaikovsky.
“Turbulent, wildly colorful and exploding with life, Strum sounded like a handful of American folk melodies tossed into a strong wind, cascading and tumbling joyfully around one another.” –Washington Post
Jessie Montgomery's music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, language, and social justice, placing her squarely as one of the most relevant interpreters of 21st-century American sound and experience.
