Notes & Reviews:

Described as "The Unique Conductorless String Orchestra," The ASP was the brainchild of Barry Lieberman, along with the man who would be the group's first board president, Dr. Alan Morgan. The concept was a conductor-less string orchestra, made up of the finest string players from around the world: Principal string players, freelance musicians, etc. As Lieberman, who also arranges material not already conceived for string orchestra, says: "It is the most fun a musician can have. We are never quite sure what the best part is - the music, the other musicians, the city, or just the joy of playing. My favorite observation about the Project is from Gramophone magazine: 'While in action the players must have been in string quartet heaven.'"
