Crucial Listening #8: Jessica Moss

Concerto storytelling, iso-polyphony, ensembles of weirdos. The Montreal-based violinist selects three important albums.

Jessica’s picks:

1) Gil Shaham – Sibelius / Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos
2) Various – Cry You Mountains, Cry You Fields (Traditional Songs & Folk Music From S.E. Albania)
3) PJ Harvey – Let England Shake

Check out Jessica’s website and Facebook for her music, live dates etc.

Oh, and I asked Jessica to point me in the direction of more Albanian vocal music after enjoying “Cry You Mountains…” so much. She sent me this, which is beautiful.

Crucial Listening is also available as a podcast.
