Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Cellist Rhonda Rider was artist-in-residence at Grand Canyon National Park in 2010-11 and asked 10 composers to write pieces inspired by some aspect of the Grand Canyon. This recording showcases the fantastically imaginative and explorative new works that were written for her.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Rider generally plays very effectively. The main expressive characteristic of these pieces seems to be the use of silence to express the spacious nature of the Canyon. If the idea interests you, it is well played and recorded. The Grand Canyon continues to inspire.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Houghton Chapel, Wallseley College, Wellseley, Massachu (01/09/2012).
