'... a score truly inspired by a tragic event (9/11) and one that is likely to transcend it.' (Peter G. Davis, New York Magazine) Thus did a leading critic sum up the remarkable Concerto for Clarinet (chamber orchestra version) by Ellen Taafe Zwilich, one of America's cutting-edge contemporary composers. And this is but one of this release's four vibrant modern chamber works for clarinet and various chamber ensembles by major composers: music that greatly enriches the modern chamber repertoire. Filling out the fascinating program are Aaron Copland's brisk and brainy Sextet for Clarinet, Piano and String Quartet, Stephen Hartke's delightfully wacky The Horse with the Lavender Eye, and Aaron Jay Kernis' richly evocative Trio in Red.


“This also appears to be the premiere recording of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Concerto for Clarinet and Chamber Orchestra. It is typical of her wonderful style, beginning with a brash, cheerful first movement before shifting gears into an elegy for the victims of the 9/11 tragedy…Even more remarkably, unlike other composers who stayed within elegy mode, Zwilich presents a third movement that is not only upbeat but actually a scherzo, albeit a quirky one with a slow passage in the middle reminiscent of the second-movement elegy…" “…there is no mistaking the deeply felt quality of the performance, so much so that the emotion is palpable, nor of the high quality of the concerto itself. I have no hesitation in recommending this disc.”
Lynn René Bayley, Fanfare Magazine
