Notes & Reviews:

This program consists of three works spanning more than 30 years. Each piece bears witness to aspects of the enduring artistic and romantic relationship between Schafer and James. Letters from Mignon is performed by James with The Esprit Orchestra, founded by conductor/composer Alex Pauk in 1983 – the same year James and Schafer first met. ATMA’s recording of Schafer’s String Quartet No. 8 with the Molinari Quartet won a Juno Award for Best Classical Composition in 2004.
