ROBERT ALDRIDGE (b. 1954): SOUND MOVES BLUES (1999) - published by Robert Aldridge

A prolific composer for all genres Robert Aldridge has received numerous commissions,
fellowships and awards for his music. His opera Elmer Gantry received unanimous praise from
The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Opera News. A CD recording of Elmer Gantry
(Florentine Opera/Milwaukee Symphony) will be released on July 1, 2011.
 
Aldridge is Professor of Composition at the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State
University, and Composer-in-Residence at the Brevard Music Festival.
 
Of “Sound Moves Blues”, Aldridge writes:
“It was commissioned by the trio SoundMoves and premiered in Oregon in 1999. The piece
is a loosely structured theme and variations based on the opening gesture. I often employ
blues-type forms, melodic and harmonic material in the variations. It was written to be an
exciting and fun concert-closer for that trio.”
