Notes & Reviews:

It was Biljana Milovanovic, pianist for the Ibis Camerata ensemble, who conceived this project of recording a group of compositions by Yehudi Wyner. Mr. Wyner performed in one piece (with Richard Stoltzman) and conducted another, but his major contribution was in coaching performers in matters of his style. The music spans 50 years of Wyner’s compositional output beginning with the Partita for Piano of 1952 and arriving at Commedia for Clarinet and Piano of 2002. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2006, Yehudi Wyner is one of America’s most versatile musicians. His compositions include more than 60 works and he has received many commissions and honors in addition to the Pulitzer. He has taught at Yale, SUNY Purchase, Cornell, Harvard and Brandeis. This is the fourth recording by the Ibis Camerata to appear on Albany Records.

"The Ibis Camerata members are clearly committed to Wyner’s music, led by pianist Biljana Milovanovic, who has a strong musical relationship with the composer. The performances of all five works are exemplary, leaving nothing to be desired, and the sound is excellent. Produced by Milovanovic with the active participation of the composer, this disc, we can be sure, fully represents the music." -Fanfare
