IBIS founders and husband and wife team Joseph Scheer and Susan Robinson perform on this charming CD. Selections include perennial favorites like Massenet's Meditation from Thais, original arrangements of Bartok and Debussy, and little known gems like the fragile and evocative Sea Shell by Carl Engel.
Out of Bounds: Music for Jazz Quartet
This engaging CD is from a live concert at the Lyon Park Community Center in Arlington VA. On a wintry night, a large audience turned out to hear this eclectic program, that featured Joe Scheer's original arrangements of jazz standards, repertoire from the Turtle Island String Quartet, tangos by Piazzolla, and Scott Joplin rags.
IBIS x 2
Another live concert event. IBIS doubles its forces, and performs with an ensemble of double string quartet, string bass, flute and harp. Program: Vivaldi's Flute Concerto in A (The "Goldfinch"), the Danses Sacre et Profane of Debussy and Handel's Concerto in Bb for Harp and Strings, and one of the glories of chamber music, the Mendelssohn Octet, written when the composer was a boy of 16.
CD's are $10, with a shipping and handling fee of $2.50.
