Fingerprint/Body and Soul/Lazy RiverFingerprint
is an inspired response to the intricate and inventive flow that is the genius of Bach. Fingerprint
pairs the young Bach’s Capriccio for keyboard with the D Major Toaccata, a bright and forthright celebration of both subtlety and bravura. Body and Soul
is a world premiere, inspired by Schumann's romantic Dichterliebe. The music deals with the obsessive and anguished suffering of a romantic lover. Lazy River
features a collection of songs from Hoagy Carmichael including Riverboat Shuffle, Georgia, Old Man Harlem and Star Dust. This toe-tapping, knee-jiggling music gets the whole company moving.
