Notes & Reviews:

With works spanning both chamber and orchestral genres, Sebastian Currier's music has been performed at major venues worldwide by acclaimed artists and orchestras. His music has been heralded as "music with a distinctive voice" by the New York Times and "lyrical, colorful, firmly rooted in tradition, but absolutely new" by the Washington Post. Currier has received many prestigious awards including the Grawemeyer Award, Berlin Prize and an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. This recording features his music for violin and piano performed by internationally known violinist Yehonatan Berwick, who plays on a violin by Joseph Guarneri from 1735 and pianist Laura Melton, who is on the faculty at Bowling Green State University and a noted chamber musician and soloist.

Fanfare Magazine, November/December 2012
The music of Sebastian Currier, quite simply, inhabits its own world: lyrical in melody but modern in harmony, the difference being that Currier selects his notes very carefully and judiciously. There are, simply, no wasted gestures or superfluous passages in his music, and it haunts the mind long after it's finished. This one is highly recommended.
