Classical interpretations of rock music have generally been something of a high-wire act. While most pop fare has strong melodic foundations for the soloist to build from, Christopher O’Riley has challenged himself with the catalog of Radiohead, one of modern rock’s most acclaimed—and texturally complex–bands. O’Riley’s insightful gifts for interpretation produce a hypnotic, emotionally compelling listening experience. O’Riley is a huge Radiohead fan, and that love courses through everything from the dreamy, bittersweet “True Love Waits” to the brooding loveliness of “Let Down.” Radiohead is known for multi-layered music that leans heavily on electronic processing for its moody sonic atmospherics; O’Riley evokes those complex textures with judicious use of the sustain peddles, a deft use of dissonance and a rhythmically anxious left hand. Call them etudes for the post-modern age, True Love Waits: The Music of Radiohead achieves what all great interpretations strive for: new insight and enlightenment.
