Notes & Reviews:

Named by the 'Baltimore Sun' as an "Artist to Watch", New Jersey born Jonathan Leshnoff is swiftly gaining international recognition. This disc shows three facets of his musical personality: the 'Violin Concerto', praised as "remarkably assured, cohesively constructed and radiantly lyrical"; 'Distant Reflections', a lyrically meditative chamber work that reaches an intense climax before fading back into silence; and the 'String Quartet No. 1' "Pearl German", whose four movements trace the cycle of seasons through an ever-changing musical landscape.
