Notes & Reviews:

This third volume of Stephen Jaffe's music focuses on orchestral music, with the largest work being the American composer's 32 minute Cello Concerto, a virtuoso composition dedicated to and performed by David Hardy, the principal cellist of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC, here playing with Denmark's Odense Symphony Orchestra. Yehudi Wyner writes that "Jaffe's instrumental writing is brilliant and sonorous; the orchestrational textures are exquisite... My response to Jaffe's music exceeds admiration. I simply love it." Also featured are virtuoso performances by the 21st Century Consort and the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra.
