Rhapsody is a unique excursion into the varied landscapes of lyricism and tonal color made possible by traditional cellistic virtuosity combined with state-of-the-art electronics. Each of Green's 15 movements explores a different sound world, all tied together into a long compositional arc that constitutes a single musical journey. Cellist Astrid Schween's artistry is grandly captured by sound engineer Tom Eaton, who brings to the recording an ambient and audiophile perspective not usually found in classical recordings.

Astrid Schween and Gordon Green are a husband and wife team. Astrid is a well-known solo and chamber artist, and the newly appointed cellist of the Juilliard String Quartet. More information about her work is available at astridschween.com. Gordon is a composer and geospatial software engineer, and more information about his music is available at gordongreen.com. His other work available from JRI includes Serpentine Sky and Other Music for Computer-Controlled Pianos and LightCycles and Other Music for Dancers
