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.
