Savannah Music Festival LIVE 647 – Robert Sadin: Messina

Composer, arranger and conductor Robert Sadin has produced some of the most interesting recordings of the past decade. Working with a diverse array of musicians including Sting, Herbie Hancock, Kathleen Battle, Stevie Wonder, and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, his musical palette often sounds ancient but is always modern. In this episode, we listen to a piece commissioned by SMF for the 2013 festival entitled “Messina”. The work features clarinettist Patrick Messina (a French musician of Sicilian heritage), cellist Vincent Segal, violinist Mark Feldman, trumpeter Etienne Charles, harpist Bridget Kibbey, bassist Ira Coleman and percussionist Rhani Krija.
