about

BEST CLASSICAL ALBUM 2000

Rhythm Spike was the debut release for New Zealand's most internationally renowned composer, John Psathas.

John’s music draws equally on classical, jazz, and rock traditions and is performed by artists from a variety of disciplines, from jazz (Michael Brecker) to contemporary classical (Evelyn Glennie). His most prestigious achievement to date was to compose the music for the opening the 2004 Olympic Games. Rhythm Spike is an album of rhythmic intensity and poetic introspection, performed by a stellar lineup of NZ and US musicians including the New Zealand String Quartet, Michael Houstoun & Deidre Irons, Dan Poynton, David Downes, Neil Becker, and New Juilliard Ensemble members Brian Resnick, Stephen Gosling, and David Arend.

“While this record bears little resemblance to a typical "mainstream" classical release (both in content and presentation), I have no doubt that we shall be hearing a lot more from the composer it so effectively showcases." — Neil Horner, Classical Web Review
