WASHINGTON, Conn. - Oct. 28, 2013 - PRLog -- Classical music composer and pianist, Sharon Ruchman of Washington, Connecticut (www.sharonruchman.com), announced her recent departure from traditional classical music with the October 2013 release of her sixth CD of original music, “A Bit of Tango and More…..” The newly-released CD features 13 tracks of Ruchman’s original music which includes two tangos, “Slow Tango” and “Milonga.” An accomplished and prolific classical music composer, Ruchman has gained international recognition as her music is aired on classical radio stations around the globe.

In her original piano solo composition “Slow Tango,” Ruchman explained that she wanted “to capture a couple dancing closely with great feeling and attention to their every movement, and to each other. The piece is melodic and emotional.” In her “Milonga” tango, Ruchman performs on piano and is accompanied by renowned cellist Mary Costanza. To highlight the beauty of this composition, Ruchman produced a YouTube video featuring famous Argentinian tango dancer and instructor Alex Krebs and dance partner Jenna Rohrbacher. “The Milonga,” she explained, “is a type of tango that moves quickly and is very rhythmic. Milonga also refers to a place where Argentines meet in a hall to dance the tango, and often to a live group of local musicians. They gather to socialize with their friends and enjoy a nice meal together." As creator of both the song and video, Ruchman commented, “Viewers can easily see how provocative the music becomes when two dancers make it come alive.”

Inspiration for Ruchman’s two original tango pieces was her grandmother. “She was born in Argentina and I feel a deep connection to the music of that country. The Argentines are passionate about this magnificent dance, and there are many variations within the tango allowing each dancer to create their own steps and style. It has become an extremely popular dance internationally, and when I studied the tango for a few years, I was able to realize its complexity and great beauty.”

The just-released “A Bit of Tango and More….” CD by Sharon Ruchman features 11 additional original compositions including track #1, “Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in G Minor” which is performed by Ruchman on piano, cellist Mary Costanza and violinist Kiwon Nahm. “Frolicking”, “Piano Sonato in A Flat Major” and “Mystere” are all original solo piano pieces written and performed by Ruchman. “Sonata for Cello and Piano in D Major” features Ruchman on piano and Costanza on cello.

Known to enjoy using imagery in her music, Ruchman commented that, “Frolicking’ is joyful in that it depicts children skipping and playing. It is a departure from what one would call ‘traditional’ classical music, and through its originality, it captures the essence of how I believe music feels.” Frequently a seeker of a place that gives her utter peace, Ruchman pursued that quest when composing “Mystere”. She stated that “this piece captures that place of calm and reflection. It is the embodiment of soothing instrumental music."

A graduate of the Yale School of Music and New England Conservatory of Music, Ruchman sang for many years with several major choruses including those associated with the Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestra. In 2009 Sharon Ruchman released her very first CD titled “Sharon Ruchman Chamber Music” featuring “Sea Glass.” She released her second CD, “Arrival of Spring,” in 2010, and her third CD, “Remembrance.” In 2012, Sharon Ruchman released two CD of her original music, “Textures,” plus her first original wedding music CD titled, “Love & Ceremony ~ Wedding Music.”
