Notes & Reviews:

The Ibis Camerata consists of four internationally acclaimed musicians of the new generation. Their unique ensemble of violin, cello, clarinet and piano enables them to command a much more varied repertoire than the traditional piano trio. Avid supporters of new music, the Ibis Camerata concentrates on Boston composers for their third recording on Albany Records. All of the composers have a relationship to the New England Conservatory, either as former students or as faculty and administrators.

"The result is a new-music recital performed in the comfort of your own home, including solo instrumental pieces, ensembles, a clarinet concerto, a song cycle, and a duo. I have attended many such events at various venues and I have often concluded that these performances represent the last vestiges of true musical ingenuity left in the world. It takes a little effort to digest the new, but the reward is more fulfilling than chowing down on the old and familiar, which, like fast food, sometimes gives you calories without taste...If these names don't ring a bell, it would be worth dipping in, because all are award-winning composers of note who, when represented by the agile instrumentalists of Ibis, redefine the notion of small ensemble fare and will, in one way or another, ring your bell...Finally, I think Bijana Milovanovic should be congratulated for pulling together all the facets of this production: venue, copyrights, permissions, recordings, obtaining the CD label, and catering to the artistic exactitude of Gunther Schuller, the genius behind the project. And in her spare time, as illustrated by this CD, she is an amazingly versatile pianist." - David Wolman, Fanfare
