Richard X Bennett started inspiring participants at Dance for PD®'s very first Brooklyn class in 2001, and he hasn't stopped.
For this companion album to Volume 4 of our At Home DVD series, Richard has composed new music for a small ensemble of musicians that works perfectly for Dance for PD classes and all dance and movement classes that demand a clear structure and supportive rhythm.
This album is features beautifully-rendered extended tracks that draw from Richard's background in jazz and in musical traditions from India and Indonesia. Colin Fowler, music director of the Mark Morris Dance Group, adds two tracks to support Mark Morris repertory selections included in Volume 4: Words (music by Felix Mendelssohn) and Grand Duo (music by Lou Harrison).
