Founded by Marin Alsop in 1981, String Fever was hailed for its remarkable versatility and unique blend of pop, jazz and classical repertoire. Fever Pitch presents pieces written and arranged for String Fever by a quartet of leading composers whose origins range from 1920s vaudeville to big band, film music and American and Afro-Caribbean folk. Marin Alsop performs numerous solos in a kaleidoscopic program which follows on from the swing standards of It Don't Mean A Thing (8.572834).
Fever Pitch enters the market after having the ground warmed for it by String Fever's It Don't Mean A Thing (8.572843), which covered big band standards. Fever Pitch shows this groundbreaking ensemble in pieces written especially for them, and this uniquely tailor-made repertoire shows their remarkably multi-faceted character to best advantage.
