High-Energy Tracks from Chicago’s Classical Record Label Cedille Records presents a disc of high-energy selections from our 100+ CD catalog, ideal for keeping you "on the move," whether walking, running, biking, driving, exercising, or just enjoying the music’s rhythmic drive. The tracks run the gamut from a Vivaldi flute concerto, to symphonic works by late-Classical era composers from Bohemia (Franz Krommer and Jan Vaclav Hugo Vorísek), to (later) 19th century concertos and chamber works, to seven selections by contemporary or very recent composers. All feature propulsive rhythmic energy designed to keep the music (and you) "on the move."
Some of the most sublime music you've never heard.
