Neil Rolnick announces the release of his newest CD, THE ECONOMIC ENGINE.  It's available on-line from Innova Recordings and Amazon, and as a download from iTunes, lala, and other sites.

The title piece, which combines traditional Chinese instruments with a classical string quartet and digital processing, is the result of four trips to China over the last three years, and was premiered in Beijing last spring.  The disk also includes UPTOWN JUMP for flute, harp and percussion, and HAMMER & HAIR for violin & piano, as well as a bonus track re-release of Rolnick's 1983 work REAL TIME for large ensemble & Synclavier.  The fabulous players who joined him on this project include the Music from China ensemble, Todd Reynolds and the Todd Reynolds String Quartet, Kathleen Supove; and MAYA (Sato Moughalian, flute, Jacqueline Kerrod, harp, John Hadfield, percussion).

Visit Neil's NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL.  It has performance videos of all the new pieces from the ECONOMIC ENGINE CD, as well as videos of past performances going back to 1988 (when he had a full beard, full head of hair, and played on a Classic Mac)!
