Notes & Reviews:

In choosing programming for her recital debut album, Leila Josefowicz was attracted to the unpredictability of combining familiar works, such as the Beethoven and the Ravel, with the uncharted territory of Salonen and Grey. "Not only does it continuously excite me to bring new compositions to inquisitive ears and be a voice of new music today," she writes, "it is the idea of combining the newer with the older, the avant-garde and eclectic with the more traditional. I believe these elements exist and breathe together." Grey's San Andreas Suite and Salonen's Lachen verlernt are written for unaccompanied violin. San Andreas Suite, composed for Josefowicz, was inspired by the composer's native California. Lachen verlernt is a harmonic progression that repeats itself several times.
