The Musical Fantasies of Joseph Fennimore

“He’s one of the finest and most underappreciated American composers today. I find in his music, qualities that are really rare to be well managed within the same piece, like melancholy and playfulness, lyricism and unpredictability. His music makes me think of composers as diverse as Poulenc, Brahms and Faure, and it deserves a wider audience.”

— Philip Kennicott, Washington Post

Program includes works by: Fennimore, Bellini/Mikhashoff, Ravel, and Eber (world premiere)
Performers: Robert Larue, cello; Theresa Salomon, violin; Marc Peloquin, piano

The Musical Transformations of John Musto

Composers often become eclectic to hide behind a lack of individuality. This cannot be said of John Musto, whose (chamber) music (on this disc) wraps arms around many musical styles even as it delivers on its own appealing, colourful and moving terms. Noted for songs and theatre works, as well as sterling pianism, Musto also is a natural when it comes to instrumental interplay. Every moment in these works emerges in the context of cohesive argument and novel design.

— Gramophone

Program includes works by: Mozart, Bernstein, Sukarma, and Musto
Performers: Split Second Piano Ensemble, Roberto Hidalgo, Marc Peloquin

The Musical Celebrations of Tania León

“There is an allure in the music of Tania León that immediately grips the listener, and demands his undivided attention, drawing him into her distinctive world. The artistic voice of León is utterly distinctive, and once one has listened to her music for any length of time, it will not be mistaken as the work of any other composer.”

— David DeBoor Canfield, Fanfare Magazine

Performers: Naho Parrini, violin; Tia Roper, flute; Marc Peloquin, piano
