Notes & Reviews:

Joyous, celebratory performances of exciting new works for chamber chorus and string quartet captured in superb recordings by Judith Sherman. This disc includes premieres from Michael Gandolfi, Stephen Leek, Paul Chihara, and Veronika Krausas. Poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti chips in with readings from his poems, and three new transcriptions of Brahms favorites combine with Beethoven's Elegaic Songs to present a memorable collection of stunningly beautiful music from these improbable combined forces. Upcoming performances throughout 2012 include stops in Philadelphia, New York, Clearwater, Memphis, Los Angeles, Fullerton, Asheville, Charlottesville, and Cleveland.
