Product Description

Street music collides with the high concerto form. Latin, Brazilian and Jazz beats unite in a compelling combination. Exhilarating, captivating. overflowing with intense energy. Area 31 is a new modern downtown Manhattan chamber ensemble of all young star virtuosos. These two concertos infuse the European concerto tradition with its American parallel, the jazz soloist interacting with a rhythm section. This exciting fusion of jazz and classical is a compelling new direction for David Chesky. Violinist Tom Chiu is a very well known violin player with the Flux Quartet. Jeffrey Khaner is principal flutist with the Philadelphia orchestra. "David Chesky comes of age as a 'classical' composer with these two concertos... [his] writing for woodwinds, bassoons especially, may bring to mind Ginastera or Villa-Lobos, but with greater transparency in the orchestration... There is real substance here, and a dynamic creative personality at work. I'm very interested to hear how Chesky will follow this achievement, and I hope that the wait won't be too long." - ClassicsToday.com
