About this Recording

LESHNOFF, J.: Symphony No. 1, "Forgotten Chants and Refrains" / Double Concerto / Rush (Wetherbee, Diaz, IRIS Orchestra, M. Stern)

“The music of Jonathan Leshnoff falls squarely in the middle of contemporary American romanticism…Though richly tonal, this is music quite distinct from anything else that’s out there at the moment.” (Strings Magazine, June 2009). On this second of three albums dedicated to Leshnoff’s orchestral and chamber music, two acclaimed American soloists bring to life his ravishing new Double Concerto, partnered here by his impressive First Symphony, a work which weaves tears and laughter into a haunting and ultimately life-affirming musical experience. The orchestral miniature Rush shimmers with pure kinetic energy.
