From hundreds of new releases in 2018, this is by far the best of the bunch! Mirror In Mirror reflects the genius of violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, her creativity, tone, and commitment to new music. Music from Philip Glass, John Corigliano, Arvo Part, Jakub Ciupinski, and Morten Lauridsen are featured in new ways, and the original sound Maurice Ravel had for his Tzigane is a revelation!

What's New: Bruch Off!

Jul 10, 2018
Sony Classical

I love it when there are several new releases of the same work – you not only get to listen to new performances but compare them to other bench marks.

We’ll hear interpretations from Rachel Barton Pine and Joshua Bell playing the same Bruch violin concerto on this episode of What’s New.

Innova Records

Dolce Suono Trio and guest artist Lucy Shelton have really done it! American Canvas is picture perfect: beauty, composition, and playing! It features music by Jenifer Higdon, Shulamit Ran, Andrea Clearfield, and Zhou Tian that is inspired by art (Georgia O’Keeffe, Andrew Wyeth, and Jackson Pollock); the natural world (Canadian Rockies) literature (Spanish medieval hero El Cid); and the past (a companion piece to Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire).

Back in 2014, Simone Dinnerstein and Philip Glass met for breakfast. There in his garden they found a shared interest in Johann Sebastian Bach's music. The end result was a commission for a concerto for piano and strings, to be paired with one of Bach's own. Dinnerstein says, "There are almost no concertos written for piano and strings since Bach's time. The pairing of the Bach concerto with Philip's own composition creates myriad strands of connectivity, enabling the listener to create bridges between the old and the new."

WBAA's John Clare spoke to Simone about her latest release, Circles, that has Glass and Bach Concerti.
