(Radio Broadcast) The American composer Doug Lofstrom spent five years working on his opera "Two soldiers". After that he was burned out and started an experiment to get his creativity back to life. In August 1989 he wanted to write one piece of music - for a lunar cycle. As he himself says, the results were widely different. From the best ideas he later formed his composition "August Diary" - August diary. A four-movement and catchy piece for string orchestra.

While the first movement brings together material from several days in August, Lofstrom was able to work in the third movement resort to a cello solo that he did almost exactly during the experiment wrote down. Lofstrom describes that what came from a tedious, experimental start, was a creative explosion in the second week of August. This phase is out of which the pensive cello solo emerged.

"Music for strings" - works for string orchestra by Doug Lofstrom - played by The Russian String Orchestra, conducted by Misha Rachlevsky - newly released at Origin Classical. And composer Doug Lofstrom finds his creativity with a unique one Summer experiment again.
