Time Turns Elastic, a ground-breaking work for vocals, guitar and orchestra composed by Trey and Don Hart, is available for pre-order now at both http://drygoods.phish.com/Dept.aspx?cp=773_16507 and http://treyanastasio.shop.musictoday.com/Dept.aspx?cp=943_16506. The piece is available on CD in Limited Edition deluxe packaging (once this version is sold out, it will revert to standard jewel-case packaging). We've also pressed it on 180g Clear Vinyl. The deluxe packaging features the Original Acoustic Demo on the B-side and quantities are extremely limited.
The piece - orchestrated by Don Hart and performed by Trey and The Northwest Sinfonia - blends the intrinsic elegance of classical music with searing blues-rock guitar, resulting in an exhilarating work that engages and challenges fans of both genres.
Trey and Orchestra Nashville gave Time Turns Elastic its debut performance at the Orchestra's season opener at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium in September 2008. Time Turns Elastic will receive its East Coast premiere on May 21st when Trey joins Music Director Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for a special evening that will also feature classic Phish songs and solo Anastasio compositions.
