Nathan Ben-Yehuda pursues a fulltime solo concert career as a classical pianist but also plays with Astral Mixtape, an innovative crossover quartet writing new works and reimagining classics from Monteverdi to Rimsky-Korsakov, and playing with ideas and thematic material from Sigur Ros to Radiohead and Four Tet. We end this album with two tracks by Astral Mixtape. The second side offers Goddess Gardens, including intoxicating 'mixtape' snippets from Scheherazade and Vaughan Williams' Lark Ascending, as well as more recent fare. Seven Hellos closes the album on side two, an original composition by the four members of the quartet. Astral Mixtape is clearly close to Nathan's heart: 'I am part of this wonderful band of fellow classical musicians who are seeking to reimagine the conventional roles of our instruments, and applying non-classical approaches to arrangement and composition in our works. Astral Mixtape is the collaborative project most personal to me.' Before we get to Astral Mixtape, however, Nathan's solo piano repertoire makes a powerful statement. Not only can Nathan handle the delicate Haydn beautifully, but also kindly agreed to play Peter Sculthorpe's Nocturnal for us. -Bob Attiyeh, producer Features 180g Vinyl 45rpm Recorded August 2-5, 2022 in Samueli Theater at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California Recording Engineers: Bob Attiyeh & Arian Jansen Mastering Engineers: Steve Hoffman, Arian Jansen, Bob Attiyeh Vinyl Mastering: Bernie Grundman Made in Germany Musicians Nathan Ben-Yehuda piano Astral Mixtape Selections Side 1: Sonata in G Major, Hob.
