To celebrate its 30 years of existence, the most renowned European orchestra had to do something really special. And that’s exactly what founder/director/composer Mathias Rüegg did: a 3-disk project comprising “portraits” of 13 American female stars, an equal number of European male thinkers, and as many imaginary meetings between the former and the latter. Imagination, men, women, beauty, mind, and fusing the American jazz tradition and the European classical music… that’s mostly what the Vienna Art Orchestra has been about for the last three decades, after all. Of course, this track can only give a small – but significant – foretaste of the maturity this wonderful orchestra has achieved.
