Notes & Reviews:

David Chesky's three new Concertos redefine the role of the modern string soloist.

Fusing classical concerto form with the modern harmonic language of American rhythmic jazz, these innovative works extend theoretical parameters to realms reserved for the few pioneers who truly evolutionalized their instruments, such as Hendrix, Parker, and Heifeiz.

Tom Chiu and Dave Eggar are by turns chamber soloists, free jazz experimentalists, and poetic sound abstractionists who bring a volcanic rock-and-roll energy to these works as they transcend the typical concerto and race towards a potent visceral conclusion.

Fiendishly difficult passage work and extreme timbral ranges present a new athleticism to the musical virtuosity as the soloists debate, collide, and duel with the orchestra and with each other.

Throughout, Chesky's poignant juxtaposition of primitive power of urban groove and the elegance of classical refinement reveals the birth of a new genre of American music.
