Notes & Reviews:

The performer-composer relationship has proven to be an integral catalyst in the musical process that has brought forth masterworks time and again. This recording serves as a testament to a long and close collaboration between renowned composer Sidney Corbett and violinist Sarah Plum. Absconditus offers the listener a rich and varied representation of Corbett's music by presenting works that span over a 17-year period, all but one of which are unveiled on the CD as world-premiere recordings. Considered one of the leading voices in today's music, the highly-prolific Corbett - protégé of the legendary György Ligeti - enjoys an international career that eludes all but the select few. His musical voice commands an envious juxtaposition of a deeply unique, contemporary language and a profoundly haunting, inwardlooking beauty. The New Journal of Music describes it poignantly: "His music is in a strange way ascetic yet at the same time sensual and combines constructive logic with atmospheric magic." The title work, Absconditus, was written for Plum, and pays a direct homage to their long-time friendship.
