Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Béla Fleck's three-movement concerto, named in honor of his son Juno, was recorded in April with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The album is rounded out with two pieces that feature Béla with the edgy Brooklyn Rider string quartet, "four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place" by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Audio Mixer: Béla Fleck.

The second concerto from the 16-time Grammy Award-winning banjo virtuoso, Juno Concerto is the follow-up to Béla Fleck's lauded 2015 outing with Chick Corea, Two. Named for his firstborn son with wife, fellow multi-instrumentalist, and frequent collaborator Abigail Washburn, the contemplative and adventurous album was recorded with the Colorado Symphony conducted by José Luis Gomez, and includes a pair of tracks with the Brooklyn Rider string quartet. ~ James Christopher Monger
