Notes & Reviews:
Over four decades, composer Robert Sirota has developed a distinctive voice, clearly discernible in all of his work - whether symphonic, choral, stage, or chamber music. His music has been performed by leading ensembles in the United States and abroad and featured at the Tanglewood, Aspen, Yellow Barn, and Cooperstown festivals. A graduate of Oberlin and Harvard, Sirota served as director of the Peabody Institute, and as president of Manhattan School of Music. This, the second recording of his music on Albany Records, features his compositions for violin and piano. The two sonatas are recent works, having been written in 2012 and 2013, while Summermusic dates from 2000.
