Violin Works

Friday, March 25, 2011

For this New Sounds, listen to the new recording, "September Canons" featuring violinist Todd Reynolds performing a piece written for him by American composer Ingram Marshall.  It’s a soaring, searing work for violin with electronic processing, and is a "lamentation on the events of September 11, 2001."  Also, hear music by new York-based violinist and composer Christopher Tignor, of the band Slow Six, from his release “Core Memory Unwound.”   Plus there’s music from Swiss violinist Paul Giger, with a Tibetan Buddhist-inflected piece for violin and choir, and a work for violin and keyboard by Max Richter.
