Bildungsroman by Steven Arntson

Bildungsroman was recorded in the remote, abandoned Old Cascade Train Tunnel in Washington State. A song cycle for Anglo concertina and voice, it features several yodels as well as virtuosic instrumentals influenced by Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee.” The album includes a PDF book containing the complete score; lyrics; and essays about concertinas, yodeling, and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

The album costs 10$ and is available through stevenarntson.info.
