#118 The Smell of Cats

Elegant, silent, soft. You want to dance into the music. There's no fight, it just wins from the first tone. Lean, blue, seductive. Purring. Claws.

Klee and music is a wonderful combination. And Dorati serves the jazzy music well; he and the Minneapolis orchestra also premiered the composition. If you're not familiar with Klee's works, now is the time.

Composer: Gunther Schuller
Work: Seven Studies on Themes of Paul Klee, III. Little Blue Devil
Recording: Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, Antal Dorati.
