"A major new work by this imaginative musical mastermind! Born in 1956 in Boston and now residing in Brooklyn, Ned Rothenberg has studied at Oberlin Conservatory and Berklee School of Music. Since 1979 his remarkable reed playing and compelling compositional stratagem have played a central role in New York's fertile downtown scene. This composition blends his brilliant classical writing with the polyphonic and microtonal woodwind techniques of his acclaimed solo music. A master of multiphonics, circular breathing and overtone control, Ned here uses his horn in both its standard melodic role and as rhythmic and harmonic engines to create rich new tapestries of sound in combination with the strings." — Tzadik
